Yes. I use it for two things:
- I modify it to allow a (logical) package to be spread over
multiple physical locations. (In Zope, products can be installed
in the Zope installation area or in Zope "instance" homes.
- I use it to determine the location(s) of a package.
Our packages usually contain many files, such as DTML
source files, images, data files, etc., that are not Python
modules. We have standard utilities for getting at these files
in packages. This is extremely useful.
