Adding a call to addsitedir won't accomplish your stated goal of

to have any impact, you have to also manage the .pth files.
I don't know what you mean here. I don't recall managing any .pth
files... If I add addsitedir to the right places, the eggs will be
picked up. I have a test egg for the Document Library here that pulls in
pyoai, lxml (dependency of pyoai), hurry.query, zc.catalog (dependency
of hurry.query), hurry.workflow, and hurry.file.
If I include the right ZCML in package-includes, Document Library works.
I hope to start using zc.table and its dependency (zc.resourcelibrary)
eventually as well. It's nice I can do this with just a tweak to the
Document Library's setup.py and a new ZCML include.
that you "requently get lost between sys.path, sys.prefix, .pth files
and the site.py module" is not at all surprising. There is a lot
of magic there. We certainly don't want to toss any of this in at the
last hour (I wish) of a release.
I'm just distributing a script that tosses this into any given Zope 3
instance now, so people can at least use this stuff in Zope 3.3. And
yes, there's too much magic going on, and I hope zc.buildout will make
life easier and less magic on the longer term.
