There are some differences in the typical directory layout. It's mostly 
mechanical, but you probably want to stay away from such a big change if 
you already have a considerable code base.

Note that you can write a bare Zope 3 application and still take 
advantage of some Grok goodies by using grokcore.component, 
grokcore.view, etc.
