If I reuse zope3 stuff in my grok application I will have to mix styles.
The new style is nice as long as you only use that style, but grok
has a pretty close relationship to zope3. There will be plenty of zope3
packages available as time goes by (there already is) and I hope we don't
want to port them all to grok. This means grok users will have to reuse
zope3 packages and then will have to mix styles and will be confused of
what is grok and what is zope3.

What about getUtility, will grok have get_utility?

This means that grok can't build on top of Zope and inherit from Zope
classes and expose those methods, grok has to have its own classes and
methods for everything. It further means that grok isn't just "convention
over configuration" and "getting rid of zcml", it's more of a completely
new rapid web platform that uses zope3 only for its implementation.

I would have hoped for more compatibility with zope3. Hmm...
