Grok is currently designed to work with Zope 3.3.

Grok used to work on Zope 2.10 until we introduced a dependency on
zope.app.catalog which sadly isn't distributed with Zope 2. We only
realized this recently. You can, of course, install megrok.five and grok
into a Zope 2.10 and bring over Zope 3.3's zope.app.catalog package
manually. No guarantees though :).
We're working on bringing Grok to the eggified world of Zope 3.4. I have
also a distribution of Zope 2 in the works that pulls in a lot of third
party components using eggs. With that in place I think it'll be much
easier to have another serious attempt at this again.

You're not the only with this dream :).

Sure. I'd be especially interested in the combination of Archetypes and
Grok. I think a lot of the Archetypes junk could be replaced with nicer
grokkish things, but I lack experience with Archetypes (recent
experience that is). So, by all means, try it out, play with it and
report back. You won't have much hand-holding along the way, though :).
