grok.components is not grokked indeed. I was jumping to conclusions.

Well, actually adding a class level grok.baseclass() directive (or
having the class name end in 'Base', but I like the directive slightly
better) does work indeed and was what I was looking for. I even knew
it existed, but somehow I got confused somewhere along the line.

Thanks for you reply, it got my thoughts straight again :-)
