I've moved it to my Sandbox since it was an experiment and never 
considered for anything real.

Well, I think back then we were suggesting to use Grok instead of 
Zope2+ZClasses. We weren't suggesting to use "Zope2+Grok" (if such a 
thing existed).

I think the Grok mechanism and approach would be great for Zope 2 
applications. However, I don't think it should and will look exactly 
like Grok. That said, we're working towards making it possible to use 
Grok's mechanisms for registering various types of components 
independently of the Grok web application framework itself. Then people 
can work on integrating those into a "Grok for Zope 2" or "Grok for 
Plone" or whatever (they should have different names, obviously).
