+1. What would you do with grokcore.* packages and grokui and such though?

I think it might be better to say we follow the ZTK here, and put a link 
in the official documentation that refers to it, along with a 
description on how zest.releaser helps automate this.


The idea is to reuse policy from the ZTK where that makes sense. If ever 
the ZTK policy changes Grok has a say in this too anyway, and if we 
really don't like it we can alway start maintaining our own.
