THat's exactly what people that I've talked to seem to expect.

With Pylons that's actually a WSGI application you configure which is 
not really what our grok.Application is. THat said, Grok is going to 
have WSGI+Paste very soon, much like we have it already for Zope 3 with 
zopeproject. Your deploy.ini would then look like::

   use = egg:TodoList


(assuming that you're writing your software in the "TodoList" 
project/egg). I imagine that this WSGI application factory could also 
install the grok.Application subclass right as the root folder. THat way 
it'd be much more like Pylons and other frameworks.
