Thanks for this modified text. I've integrated your changes, though I've 
re-established some major points that I wanted to make that I felt were 
a bit broken by your edits. This includes saying the following very early:

     * Grok offers a lot of building blocks for your web application.
     * Grok is informed by a lot of hard-earned wisdom.

as I believe these are main selling points.

I've also mentioned Zope 3 very early (we make the heritage clear), but 
said right away you don't need to know it in order to get productive 
with Grok.

I then go into your expanded points, though I've edited quite a bit of 
the text.

If people like this new version, I suggest we put it online an 'about' 
section in the menu, and also link to it prominently in the front page. 
I'd say we quote the first section on the homepage (everything up to 
'Grok is agile') along with a '..more' that's a link.
