Having glanced at collective.mercury, I see it does code generation. I 
was hoping it generated schemas from tables at run-time (and was 
wondering how it took care of some of the initialization complexities 
involved), but instead it generates Python modules.

I don't like code generation much...

(the license is also GPL, which I'd like to avoid for Grok)

collective.tin has dependencies on Plone. At first glance, it looks like 
the implementation of a Zope 2 containerish thing similar to Christian's 
work on the Storm container to Grok. Not immediately useful to Grok, 
though perhaps the experiences there are of use.
