Yes, the css and js are shipped 'in the egg' to make deployment (in 
theory) easier.

Hmm that's weird. The MANIFEST.in definitely lists the css and js files 
in the marginalia directory. I've just rebuilt the egg and tar.gz and 
re-uploaded them to pypi (and checked that the css and js are included) 
so I suggest trying to download them again and see if it now works.

Great and I hope we can get this sorted out.
