It's a pain to deploy Widgets-based apps as of yet. We're planning on
doing something that will allow you to just throw any Resource-defining
modules in a directory and have it show up on your server, but we haven't
figured out exactly how it will work yet.

Right now you either have to be able to instantiate a widget through
telnet or manhole interfaces on an already-running server, or create
your own .tac file that instantiates a web.server.Site with a Widget in it.
