Hi there,

I've reorganized the ZTK SVN somewhat to support the separation between 
ztk.cfg and zopeapp.cfg.



I recommend we update Grok's buildouts to use these lists.

There are two possible scenarios I see for Grok.

1 step transition:

Grok 1.1: transitional release for Grok. Grok lost dependency all 
zope.app.* packages, and is just importing from zope packages. We offer 
zopeapp.cfg to users who need to upgrade their imports and still have 
their code working. Once they're done, zopeapp.cfg can be safely dropped.

Grok 1.2: Grok is released without any zopeapp support. Users who want 
to upgrade will have to go through Grok 1.1.

2 step transition:

Grok 1.1: First transitional release. Still some dependencies on 
zope.app.* packages that we couldn't lose yet. We get very busy porting 
more code into zope.* or Grok itself where needed.

Grok 1.2: Second transitional release. No more dependencies on 
zope.app.* packages. We do offer zopeapp.cfg as transition support to 
help users migrate away their last imports.

Grok 1.3: Grok without any zopeapp support. User who want to upgrade 
will have to go through Grok 1.2, possibly Grok 1.1 as well.

Our goal should be to make Grok as free of zope.app.* imports as we can 
make it. If that looks difficult, please report it here and we'll 
discuss it.
