Hi Lennart. I don't want my comment to infer that Grok is insecure since 
I realize that it has mechanisms for authorizing views, authenticating, 
etc. Despite this, I prefer plain z3 since it does not remove security 
proxies by default, that's all. For folks that use Grok exclusively, the 
removal of security proxies is most likely an advantage.
