All these extensive license pages which seem to add interpretations to
the GPL 3.0 *plus* that you now have the understanding that you're *not*
allowed to publish ExtJS on PyPI even though the GPL explicitly allows
such redistribution reaffirm my belief to stay away from ExtJS due to
licensing confusion. :)
Note that the "open source" exception (for whatever that is worth
anyway) only pertains to ZPL 2.0, which hasn't been in use for some
years now. I will note that this page of the FSF *does* claim the ZPL
2.1 is compatible with the GPL 3.0:

Yeah, something like this might work. You could simply instruct people
to download ExtJS and include a <resourceDirectory> statement in their
app to publish it.
