I'm probably as big a Debian proponent as you'll find around here, and
my original Zope installs on Debian date back to August 1999. That
having been said:

Debian doesn't package LocalFS, that's true, but it doesn't need
to. Unpack it somewhere (use /usr/local/zope/LocalFS if you want to
keep everything separate), and symlink it into
/usr/lib/zope/lib/python/Products as needed. Debian won't stop you
from running LocalFS, and LocalFS won't stop you from running
Debian. I installed it sometime around a year and a half ago, and it
worked fine then.
