FWLIW I'm running Debian/testing here.

Ahh, perhaps there's the critical bit. What symlink and why?
I installed the Egenix Debian mx packages which shoved all their bits
$ dpkg --get-selections | fgrep egenix
$ dpkg -L python2.1-egenix-mxtools | fgrep site-packages
Just to check that my Zope installation is running python 2.1:
$ head -1 `which zope-z2`
$ ls -l /usr/bin/python
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Apr 28 14:42 /usr/bin/python -> python2.1
$ ls -l /usr/bin/python2.1
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 517864 Apr 20 01:32 /usr/bin/python2.1
There doesn't seem to be a Zope-specific site-packages directory unless
I'm missing something. /usr/lib/python2.1/site-packages and
/usr/local/lib/python2.1/site-packages are the only site-packages
directory I have on my system outside of XEmacs.
I've cut back my Zope installation to:
Debian Zope package (2.5.1-1)
CVS CMF (newer than the Debian package)
and the above listed python2.1-egenix-mx* packages.
I'm passing "-I /var/lib/zope" to zope-z2 (setting of ZOPECTLOPTS in
the init script) and then installing CMF, Localizer, mxDateTime, and
NuxWidgets under /var/lib/zope/Products. Per the products list in Zope
this works fine.
Still no go here for the ZPT widgets/calendar tag tho.
As I understand the docs and how NuxWidgets is trying to hook into ZPT
I shouldn't have to do anything in my page template other than just
call widgets/calendar, right? Specifically I don't have to do a
use-macro or similar reference to NuxWidgets beforehand...

Arrgh. Debugging Zope is something I've not done before. I see several
basic approaches recommended when wandering zope.org. Recommended
