Thanks to Sidnei's heroic efforts during the last few days of fixing 
various Zope packages and releasing them, too, Grok actually runs on 
Python 2.6 and all tests pass!

Yes, there are a few deprecation warnings here and there. And when I 
compiled the ZODB egg under Python 2.6 it reported a syntax error in 
some module (that seems to be unused in Grok, though). So you might not 
want to do this in production just yet ;). But certainly it's good to 
see that all tests pass and we have an actual list of things to work on.

Anybody who'd like to replicate the result and perhaps improve the 
situation of the deprecation warnings and syntax errors just needs to 
override the following versions in buildout.cfg:

mechanize = 0.1.9
zope.app.appsetup = 3.8.0
zope.app.component = 3.5.0
zope.app.container = 3.6.1
zope.app.form = 3.6.3
zope.app.publisher = 3.5.1
zope.app.testing = 3.5.6
zope.testbrowser = 3.5.1
