I like pulling Grok classes from "grok" and pre-existing Zope 3 classes
from whatever their home is in the Zope namespace.  Currently, our loose
rule seems to be that declarations should all come from "grok", no
matter where they come from in Zope, so that:

    class MyAdapter(grok.Adapter):

... looks symmetrical; it would really lose something, visually, if all
of those pretty "grok." strings lined up down the left-hand side became:

    class MyAdapter(grok.Adapter):

But for things like "Interface" that are not directives but are simply
normal objects of various sorts, we might not want to start down the
path of providing them through "grok", since otherwise there's no end to
the number of things it would have to include.

People so far, I note, have responded to you by talking about Interface
as the target of adaptation; do Grok people ever creates Interfaces of
their own and need "Interface" for that?
