Hey Luciano,

Thanks a lot for this progress report!

This is pretty cool! We should like this from the Grok homepage. Darryl, 
can you do this?

Sounds like a good plan to me. Since we don't need relationships that 
much in your application, doing it the simpler way first is definitely 
the right way to go. We should just keep zc.relationship in the back of 
our mind, as a good, general relationship story would really be very 
useful for Grok.

I just got around to replying to this elsewhere. I think yes, and in 
something like 'grokexamples'. I'd like these projects to be separate 
buildouts so that people can easily get started with them.

Since you're calling it kirbi, I think 'kirbi' would be a good name. :)
