I think it may have something to do with me building in a wheezy chroot and 
not a sid one.

One strange thing I encountered with the updated libkolab source packaging is 
the lack of an __init__.py file in the kolab Python package provided by the 
python-kolab Debian package. This means that it isn't possible to import from 
kolab in a Python program, affecting pykolab. Do you see that problem as well?

The python-kolab.install file within libkolab looks like this:


Adding an entry for the __init__.py file fails because there isn't one already 
present or subsequently generated. What am I missing here?
