I think we could have a special 'grokbackwards' package that people 
upgrading from 1.0 to 1.1 can install to get all the packages that their 
code expected as much as possible. Grok 1.1 proper will *not* install 
the extra dependencies.

We then encourage people to lose the dependencies on those packages as 
much as possible, or alternatively make them explicit in their own 
setup.py if they're really needed.
