I haven't experimented and I've only read through 3 of the 5 'must read'
doctest files (there are also 3 'advanced user' files and 5
'informative' files yet to read). I'm impressed. I remember my first
reading of zope.formlib.form.txt and being overwhelmed. This has been
the opposite experience.

The demos are impressive.

I'm on GMT+12. Has anyone taken part in an online sprint? Is such a
thing possible? I would be willing to set aside time to take part in
such a sprint to 'grok' this package. I will need some nursing.

The description of zcml.txt includes: "... make it easier to register
new templates without writing Python code". I gravitated to Grok because
I'd rather forget the zcml and write Python code.
