I went back on the track to get grokui.admin get out for 1.1
I already removed all the zope.app from there.
There are, in some packages I released, some zope.app.zcmlfiles
ugliness I need to kick out :)

Globally, i'm willing to help on that transition as much as possible.
If there are any defined tasks, I'll gladly do it.

Meanwhile, as grokui.admin globally works as it is now, i'll try to
push the introspector back in now

> 1 step transition:

> 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
