If we're hoping to see wider Grok adoption, I think it needs to be
possible to 'easy_install grok' and get a working environment, without
requiring that non-Zope folks learn / use buildout (too much "koolaid"
for many).

That will require tightening up the dependency story further, and
ensuring that the release of a "stray" egg doesn't make grok uninstallable.
