Having read everyones valuable replies I can conclude it by saying:
1. A lot of people like to use the expression "zope3 on rails" to
explain Grok is to other python developers.
2. It's not good enough to be made official since it comes with a
risk of being misrepresented and misunderstood.
As a closing though, I'd Grok to be a shortcut for RUNNING zope3, not
a shortcut to UNDERSTAND zope3. I mean, I run <insert user friendly
linux distro name> to avoid having to compile my own kernel, not to
soften me into learning how to compile my own kernel.
Even seasoned zope3 developers should benefit from Grok, then even
Stephan Richter might use Grok.
