I'd agree that using Sphinx should principally be enough to document 
Grok and it features. Big big advantage is it means hardly any 
server-setup. The current grok.zope.org server is getting quite old and 
rusty actually.

Another big big advantage is it would be easier to integrate updating 
the website with the release procedure. Something I tried to a little 
bit in the context of the groktoolkit package. Releasing grok is not 
particularly hard or anything, but it involves quite some manual steps 
that are tedious.

Anyway, thanks for picking up this ball!
