Being one of these developers, I just wanted to agree with that  
statement. I have read the first and second version of Philips book  
and was always looking at Zope, because I like the cool architecture.  
I develop software for a living, but not with Zope. So I'm looking at  
Zope in my spare time, which is quite hard if you need all that ZCML,  
just to get the simplest example up and running.

Grok has changed that: Using Grok you can just get started, play with  
object, ... Programming with Grok is the way I always imagined Zope  
development should be.
