Well, what about grokking the grokkers? I think configure.zcml is 
justified, though it would be very short:

   <grok package=".meta" />

Regarding meta.zcml, I still hold the opinion that the <grok /> ZCML 
directive should be moved out to a separate package (my suggestion was 
to call it grokcore.config) because it's both orthogonal and necessary 
for every other grokcore.* package. I'm offering to do this.
