It's likely that Nevow will come to depend upon Epsilon at some point in the future: for example, code shared between Axiom and Nevow will not be scattered through the Divmod repository in multiple places.  However, if the depth of dependencies concern you, it would be useful if you could help by making some automated-dependency-resolving packages for twisted, epsilon, and nevow, such as debian packages (testing with ubuntu would surely be appreciated by a large community) and python eggs.

It doesn't really matter what the dependencies are as long as the user-experience of beginning to develop with Nevow is 'apt-get install nevow'.
