Well, grokproject is part of the Grok project. :)

While managing separate projects is very nice, we still want to release 
Grok as a unified whole. After all, we have 1.0a1 documentation 
mentioning this stuff too. While the code may be in grokproject now when 
you install Grok you get WSGI stuff out of the box.

I think that's a good idea. Note that it's useful to have grokwiki 
around to do quick (non-automatic) testing - we'd need some other 
strategy to do that easily.

Feel free to work on that, and make an issue out of it on launchpad so 
we can keep track of progress.
