When you look at the HelloWorld you think "this code doesn't do  
anything except return som html" and then you look at Mamoth and it is  
a lot more complicated. The point in my example is that you can see  
what your application really might look like AND it is short and  
trivial to understand.

If we only want it to be trivial, we are better off doing this:

   import grok
   from zope.security.interfaces import IUnauthorized

   class Unauthorized(grok.View):

       def render(self):
           return "Hello World!"

Which is a lot more compact and doesn't even require registration of  
the application. Even shows off the component architecture.
