I've been trying to get into using Zope for a while and was 
overwhelmed.  I started using Grok about 3 weeks ago and  was able to 
understand it.  I then tried to implement authentication with Grok and 
that is when I switched to Zope 3.  Grok was a gateway for me to Zope 
3.  At fisrt I liked Grok because of the lack of configuration, now I've 
left Grok because of the lack of configuration.

I much prefer configuring permissions outside of my python code and 
having the app server handle it than checking if a person is 
authenticated before a method's main body.

I now prefer to use Zope 3, but if it wasn't for Grok, I'd still be 
thinking Zope 3 would be cool to use but not actually using it.

Who knows, talk to me in a week and I may feel different.  I go up and 
down.  Every time I stumble across some feature of Zope that I didn't 
see in any docs I see how much I don't know.
