grok.url() (versus view.url()) was added by me because I needed to 
construct a URL outside of a view. This can for instance happen in a 
zc.table based renderer, or in event handlers (though getting to the 
request from there is so hairy it deserves getting its own 
grok.get_request() function, which could be an alternative way to make 
grok.url work without explicit request).
