For people following along, we hope to land this feature in Grok at some 
point (post-sprint, probably, but perhaps pre-1.0?). This feature will 
allow people to just add dependencies to their setup.py without having 
to worry managing includes of ZCML. This should make reuse of existing 
components a bit easier -- it's one less thing to forget --, and that's 
good, right?
