Do you mean I should use /usr or I should not?  I see that Gregor's
package uses /usr/lib/zope to store the software home files... I'm not
sure what this means to the FHS.

I also see that the existing debian Zope product packages (at least the
ones I've looked at) put their products into /usr/lib/zope/Products.

Right.. this is very cool.  Luckily, I'm only worrying about Zope itself
at the moment... Product packagings are a different story.

OK, I think so too... I'd like to hear the opinions of the existing
debian and rpm maintainers as well, though...

A tremendous amount of effort has been put into packaging Debian and RPM
Zope packages.  I want to make sure that what I do doesn't step on
anybody's toes in this realm... it will be problematic if we start to
create rpm and deb distros that are completely different than the ones
that already exist.  At the same time, it would be nice if we could come
up with some sort of cross-platform standard for file locations.
