[Grok-dev] Pluggable Grok API

   We were talking since a while to have a way to automatically import things in the grok top-level package if other packages are present.

   I would really like to see this coming through.

   We could use the interfaces IGrok..API defined, that are used to define __all__ in the __init__ of each package, as entry-point values in setuptools. After we could write a piece of code that does the import based on that, in a package, if the name is not already defined (so we can still override things, like View in grok). That could be doable.

   What do you think of this idea ?



PS: And we coud throw away formlib !
