Not sure if it helps, but I had this idea for getting rid of 

1) copy the regsitrations made in zope.app.zcmlfiles to Grok's 

2) remove the dependency on zope.app.zcmlfiles.

3) step by step see to remove of re-implement the registrations that are 
now in zope.app.zcmlfiles.

The more I work on this zope.app thing, the more I'm thinking we should 
arrange for some small sprint to work in this together face to face. It 
is just too easy to get tied up in the package-dependecies-spaghetti, to 
get confused and side-tracked and plain frustrated  - at least that was 
what I felt working on this so far.
