This is true for all frameworks I think. For example if you easy_install
Pylons the only useful thing it does for you is add a pylons project
template you can use with paster.

That makes a fair amount of sense. Perhaps grok should depend on
grokproject so that installing grok automatically makes a paster
template for grok projects available.
