configure.zcml is never loaded by unit tests, unless you explictly do 
so. The unit tests grok the grokkers in Grok before running but this 
doesn't go through configure.zcml.

In grokcore.component, this stuff is now in grokcore.component.testing 
(the 'grok()' function).

If you run ftests, I believe configure.zcml is loaded. The 
grokcore.component 'configure.zcml' file looks rather too involved right 
now in trunk. In fact I think it could be removed entirely - the 
meta.zcml is the important package.
