I agree. One thing that would be useful is to have a set of optional
add-on products for grok that implement common features. For example I
would love to see a megrok.authentication that I could plug into all
grok applications. LoginDemo could then just be a trivial demo which
only loads grok and megrok.authentication and does nothing else.
