Hi Phillip. I am aware of trusted adapters and very happy about this 
development. I'm going to begin experimenting with grokcore.component 
today. All I can say is woo hoo! This is going to make z3 development 
much faster, simpler and more fun.

BTW, will there an easy way to see what grokcore.component is doing or 
to generate zcml if you would like to see it. I am quite used to zcml 
and may want to confirm what it is doing. Many thanks.
