This is a good point, but it does happen. I have an application that 
consists of a Python library and a web application that uses this 
library, and they both share the same namespace package.

Then there's also a grey area between application and framework and 
library. Perhaps eventually we'll need a new option in grokproject if 
you want to create something more library-ish for Grok, such as 
something that only depends on grokcore.component.
