Usually, products written completely in Python can be installed just by
untarring the file. Products built through the web (ZClasses) usually comes
as a .zexp file, which is essentially the pickled objects that make up the
ZClasses, DTML Methods, etc. These need to be imported from the Products
Control Panel. Is that the voodoo you're talking about?

The difference is basically whether the product is just distributed as files
that go in your file system, or as objects that need to live somewhere in
your ZODB.

I'm not sure that it really matters as long as your webserver process can
read the files.
