The ``GlobalUtility`` grokker was calling config.action from
zope.configuration which was deferring the actual registration of my
components so that it could apply a discriminator to check for
configuration conflicts. So, I modified my grokker to do the same:
gave it a discriminator of ``None`` (cannot conflict with anything),
and a high-valued ordering. It now runs as expected:

            args=(class_, name, category),
