I think we can certainly release martian, with the following remarks - 
more directed to "Grok folks":

Martian-trunk also contains the preparations for improved defaults for 
module-level directives. This is to help solve the infamous 
template-directive inheritance in Grok.

As a result, the current Grok trunk might not work with the current 
martian trunk (and thus any upcomming release of martian).

With that said, if there're no other objections, I can do a release of 
martian-0.12 if that helps repoze's 1.0 release somewhere this weekend.

Would that help you?
