Well put.

Again, Grok needs to follow at Python. Python doesn't feel like it locks 
you in. It feels natural to write code in it (at least to me). It makes 
the right choices obvious. It still has tremendous flexibility.

With Zope 3 and a little bit of care, Grok has the "framework of 
choices" story covered more than adequately. That's why Grok needs to 
focus on making particular choices obvious.

The oddness about this template neutrality debate is that here Grok is 
more like Zope 3 - we look into providing *new* choices. Since we have 
the opportunity to review templating in a newish framework, I'd like to 
take it. There are certainly dangers associated with it. One way to deal 
with those dangers is to make sure that the current ZPT way of doing 
things continues to work, whatever else we do.
