Way cool! I'll test soon.

I'm in favor of merging this asap, but I'll list some requirements.

Concerning the first proper release, what about coinciding Grok 0.9 with 
Zope 3.4?

I'm happy to update the tutorial and want to move to the new method. I 
do want to retain the 'lighting fast installation' feature the tutorial 
currently have. If you set things up right, making a new instance for a 
particular tutorial is done in a flash. I hope we can figure something 
out with a local egg cache or whatnot to replicate this in the new scenario.

The next step with this is to start pulling apart Grok into separate 
bits and pieces, so that I can have a grokcore.component that's 
compatible with Zope 3 and release Zope 3 libraries that use it. We 
should do this after the merge of course.
