All that grokcore.config would have are 'zcml.py' and 'meta.zcml' from  
grokcore.component. In meta.zcml you register new directives. In this  
case, it configures the <grok /> directive.

grokcore.component wouldn't need a meta.zcml because it doesn't  
register a new directive. For backward compatibility reasons, the  
'grok' package would have a meta.zcml, but it would refer to  
grokcore.config's one: <include package="grokcore.config"  
file="meta.zcml" />
