These steps have now been taken. grokcore.view 1.13a1 has been released 
and this version is listed in grok's versions.cfg and the svn:external 
has been lifted.

Principally we can now indeed.

I have an issue though:

Grok (and the grokcore.* family too probably) contains still quite some 
imports from "deprecated" packages. For example from zope.app.container, 
zope.app.folder, zope.app.intids, etc. etc.

In my opinion we should try to get rid of these "deprecated" imports.

Questions (again):

1) Do people think we should try to get rid of these imports for the 1.1 
release? Personally I would like to...

2) To what extend could changing these imports (and thus potentially 
lifting dependencies) have repercussions on persistent objects? We 
should be careful I guess about this.
