[Grok-dev] grok directive for only grokking during development mode

I think it would be useful to have a directive that can be put on a
component so it only gets grokked during development mode, not in
production mode. Something like this:
'MyView' would only be grokked and thus only registered in development
mode, not in production mode. This requires us figuring out what
development-mode and production-mode currently mean in Zope and how to
detect it during the grokking process...
Or perhaps we should generalize this to the tagging story we already
discussed quite a while ago:
the 'grok.tag' directive would receive one or more tags. Tags are then
used to determine what gets grokked or not, perhaps like this:
<grok:grok package="." include_tags="a b" exclude_tags="c d" />
It'd be nice to be able to spell out the include_tags and exclude_tags
in Python somehow, so that we don't end up writing a lot of ZCML in the
Some tags could be given special meaning, like 'devel', which means
"don't include during production mode". Anyway, a bit of design to work out.
What do people think? Ideas? Suggestions?
Someone volunteering for its implementation? :)
