Thanks for this report and the analysis!

Hm, looks like we want to update this one. Could you make a launchpad 
issue for this one? I assume that once we update Grok to use newer eggs 
we should be okay, but this way we'll make sure. It's also a good 
reminder we should do this at the sprint!

Yes, go to the buildout of your project and add the following:

zope.i18nmessageid = 3.4.3

Then rerun bin/buildout

Well, you have no access to that URL, as we maintain it. :) You can do 
it in your own buildouts as above, and for 0.12 we should update it to 
use this too.

Anyway, I don't guarantee this will not break compatibility, but there's 
quite a good chance things will work if zope.i18nmessageid's API hasn't
