If by that you mean, will you be able to create a Debian-packaged 
TurboGears without extensive patching to work around the issue, the answer 
is no, you will not.

Right now, easy-deb looks like the best bet for people wanting a 
Debian-packaged TurboGears, in that my understanding from the author is 
that it does in fact Debianize eggs.
