Ah, you beat me to it - I just sat in front of my keyboard thinking 
about exactly this...! Anyway, thanks for the extensive write-up!

This is personally high on my agenda. I was slightly afraid people would 
be more interested to think about post-1.0 coolness and forget about one 
important thing: there's not post-1.0 coolness without a 1.0.. ;)

Anyway, yes, let's focus on this on day one and release.

As an side note: Jan-Jaap (who will attend the sprint as well) is 
setting up a buildbot that tests the ZTK and whatever we can think of 
that we want to have automatically tested.

Yah! We have some ideas for making hurry.resource more flexibly 
rendering its HTML snippets. There's also been a little discussion in 
#grok as well about integrating grok.DirectoryResource declarations and 
hurry.resource declarations.

We have some experience with this - maybe we can compare different ideas 
and strategies using JSON and Grok.

I'm very much looking forward to the sprint!!
