I think there's a good use case for adding such functionality to both 
grok itself (just like grok.url()) and to the view (and viewlet, I 
guess). We already have application_url() which does much the same, but 
then gets the URL right away. We should factor the walk-up-the-tree 
functionality out.

Contributions would be welcome!

(As an alternative I often use grok.getSite(), but that will only work 
for applications that have no sub-sites in it, so the tree walking would 
be better here)
