I'm pretty sure it is, as the fact is rather strange.

No, just copied without further breaking. I wanted to do this in steps.
The first obvious step was to make the package behave like the module.

exactly. The layout is now

This prompts me to put it into a different module and see.
aaaand... it works.
This layout works.
I moved __init__.py into test.py, and left __init__.py empty (it should
not matter to import test. test.py will be grokked anyway)
Ok, so the fact appears to be that anything in __init__.py is apparently
grokked (otherwise I would not get the message about the missing
template for a View class, the class would simply be skipped), but
something does not find the template dir, even if specified explicitly
Bug or feature ?
Thanks for the help! :)
By the way, I'm not running the 1.0. I'm running the latest beta.
