Ha Ha, I appreciate your comments!

I have found grok to be an amazing RAD tool for two reasons:

    a)  It provides you with all the power of the Zope Component
    Framework (ZCF) without the pain of having to use ZCML (Zope Config
    XML) and
    b)  It's just so easy to adapt existing code as requirements change

I refuse to be an apologist for the ZCF- it's an amazing achievement by 
some great Python coders, and well worth learning even if you never use 
grok.  I think a lot of peoples gripe with the ZCF was due to the use of 
ZCML for site configuration for Zope-3, and I don't really think Pyramid 
gains a whole lot by hiding the ZCF from developers.

Anyway, thanks and good luck,
