I'm not sure how setuptools would react if we have a five.grok egg and a 
five.grok.z3cform egg, though.

+1 - let's get a package structure set up and then we can both work on it.

I'd prefer not to have a dependency on grokcore.formlib if that's 
feasible. Rather push the shared functionality into grokcore.formutils 
or something?
