I think that's a very good idea. We *need* the perspective to people new 
to Grok, so we can improve its documentation and Grok itself. And if 
something seems particularly odd to you, please do tell us here on this 
mailing list. Either we'll explain why we think it isn't odd, or we'll 
go: oh, yeah, it *is* odd and perhaps we'll be able to do something 
about it.

Yes, I think it might be helpful to have a simpler API in Grok itself 
for getting the flash messages back again, and setting them up, and so on.

I think we all really appreciate this, actually. :)
