I think I saw this discussion before, and I also agree that I as well
want the ability to  start several applications or several instances
of one application on one server. I think it should be possible to
take over the site-root, that's difficult with Zope2, and I know we
had problems with that when doing EasyPublisher where we wanted that
to happen.

But I'm pretty sure that most developers do not want the application
== root by default, at least not once they have gotten used to Grok,
so I also think that it should be easy to switch. Perhaps even easy to
use the same application in both ways.

Would is be possible to have a way to select the root application in
the configuration?
