I have an issue with this. z3c.pt.compat creates a nasty issue when
trying to package it as a Debian package.

The root cause seems to be that z3c.pt.compat declares z3c.pt as a
namespace package. These are defined in the setuptools documentation to
be "merely a container for modules and subpackages." [1]. z3c.pt doesn't
conform to that as it contains files. This doesn't matter till you try
to install it using the --single-version-externally-managed option, at
which point you get file conflicts.

I've been thinking about it a while, and I think the only solution is to
rename z3c.pt.compat to z3c.ptcompat, make a new release of that and
migrate z3c.form. I'm willing to implement that if there's enough
support.
