I would say so.

You'll have to sign contributor agreement [1] and send it to Zope 
Corporation (e.g. scan it and send an email, or fax it). Tell them 
you're working on Grok and/or Grok extensions so that they know what 
your connection is. You will then be able to commit to svn.zope.org 
using your zope.org username and an SSH key that you have to upload. See 
[2] for more info.

What would you do in a pure Python application? I presume you would 
write a few lines of Python. It seems to me we should do the same in 
Grok, though of course it means you're hard-coding database access into 
your application code.

Sounds like a reasonable aproach. It's what z3c.zalchemy does, by the way.
