I'd also be aware that plone.portlets, whilst well-documented (I hope) 
is in the "powerful and flexible" category. I.e. there are a few 
concepts to wrap your head around. In plone.app.portlets we've built 
Plone-specific management UI and policy, as well as base classes which 
make it as easy as possible to define new portlets (the most common task 
for developers to do with portlets in Plone).

Eventually, we may want a megrok.portlets which takes some policy 
decisions on how they are to be managed and makes those more easily 
available to Grok applications (for example - how to invoke add forms 
for portlets, how to remove and re-order them, etc.). I think that's a 
separate discussion, which I'd love to have if other people are 
interested. :)
