Package: zope-localizer
Version: 1.0.1-8ubuntu1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

After installation of zope-localizer ZMI :: Control_Panel :: Products shows a broken Localizer product.  Clicking on the "broken" icon yields an ImportError exception:

The symlink points to /bin/zgettext but should have pointed to /usr/bin/zgettext.  Please correct.
