I get confused by the definition "app" and grok.Application. What are  
exactly? And is a "grok app" synonymous with grok.Application?

To me an application is a fat client written with Qt, Cocoa or  
whatever. In
the web and grok world I guess an app is the actual site (not the zope3
term site)? Or is a site composed of a number of apps? I would guess
grok.Application is the actual site root. It sounds like Luciano thinks
something else. Could someone explain this a bit?
