I think we should also consider doing this not just with Grok, but with 
other zope.app.packages that we need to "rescue" from zope.app that 
depend on zope.app.zcmlfiles. This will hopefully allow grok to rely on 
just a few zope.app.* packages instead of on a *lot* of them.

Agreed. I'd be happy to come to such a sprint!
