Oh, and here's another reason: this allows registration at ZCML 
configuration time rather than import time (since we're not setting it 
up in Python) without inventing new directives:


Or in Grok speak:

     grok.global_utility(myRoot, IAnonymousUtility, name="root")

I think we'd want a less icky name than IAnonymousUtility, though.
