1) was already there and adding 2) and fixing the typo (see below) did not
result in having the hodweb app being added at first startup.
I also added a pdb in zope.generations.generations.SchemaManager.install, but
it never get called.
This is working fine in an other project but then with Grok 1.0 and
zope.app.generations instead of zope.generations.
Does Grok 1.4 and zope.generations work for everyone else?

Typo. It should say 'hodweb.generations'. Fixing it did not help.
