Yup, as long as it is not getting too complicated ;-)

Yes, the mailing list is empty, but the last release of kss.core is
dated november, 27th 2009. And as it is widely used in Plone, one can
expect that it will be developed further.

I'm fine with it :-)

Although, I should not conceal that there might be trouble with upcoming
Grok 1.1: kss.core still relies on many zope.app.* packages so it (and
megrok.kss) does not play well with 1.1a2. In the long run this might
become a problem for Plone (where KSS is widely used) as well, so I'll
try to sort this out.

Best regards,
