Both :).

I think we want to split up Grok for it to be more modular. This is a 
perfect example of a single, self-contained piece of functionality that 
makes sense to be shipped with *and* without Grok.

I would personally like to tackle to split-up of Grok pretty soon. I've 
done an experiment a while back already and it worked well. The lessons 
learned have been incorporated into the 0.11 release already. My plans 
are to start with splitting off the ZCML directive implementation and 
the registration of core components (adapters, utilities, subscribers) 
before the year is over...
