We have made Grok smaller as it's based on a smaller ZTK now. That said, 
it's still a lot of packages, and some of them have C components. I do 
believe many of these, such as zope.interface, have been made to work on 
GAE (with their python version), but I'm not sure whether people are 
currently working on this. You could ask on zope-dev.

One blocker would be the ZODB, which currently is required by Grok. 
There has been some work done by Christian Klinger to disconnect Grok 
from the ZODB.
