    JF> Zope products are python packages installed as sub-packages of
    JF> the Zope 'Products' packages.  Products are generally
    JF> self-contained.  If they need anything that's not part of
    JF> standard Python or standard Zope, they need to include it or
    JF> install what they need in a sub-package of another Zope
    JF> package, 'Shared'.

Jim, from your description, it sounds like Zope should be putting both
the `Shared' and possibly `Products' directories on sys.path.  Maybe
it does and I'm still missing your point.

However if they are not, then wouldn't this solve your problem?  A
user would drop the kjParsing directory into Shared, and then all the
import kjParsing.kjParser statements would Just Work.
