In fact Debian's dzhandle (part of zope-common package) does this already:
# sudo dzhandle add-product --help
usage: dzhandle [<option> ...] add-product [<option> ...]

  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -l, --lazy            add missing addons only (error on manually installed
  -t ATECHNIQUE, --installation-technique=ATECHNIQUE
                        how to install addons (linked, tree-linked, copied)

This works for all supported zope versions (including zope3).

Though I guess this is not an option for you guys, since Debian's Zope
packages are considered evil :)
