I think we could have a special 'grokbackwards' package that people
upgrading from 1.0 to 1.1 can install to get all the packages that their
code expected as much as possible. Grok 1.1 proper will *not* install
the extra dependencies.
We then encourage people to lose the dependencies on those packages as
much as possible, or alternatively make them explicit in their own
setup.py if they're really needed.
