I'm afraid there isn't much in the way of documents comparing Grok to BFG or 
Zope 3 to BFG as a web framework.  The Repoze/Zope/Grok communities overlap a 
good bit so everyone is quite nice to each other about their frameworks. ;-)

In general, though, these days I think it's safe to say if you want Zope3, you 
want Grok.  "Want Zope3" can be defined as "want ZODB, want Zope-style 
form-generation, want ZPT".  If you want something smaller that feels similar 
but doesn't make as many choices for you, BFG is probably the way to go.

One set of comparisons on the axis of "number of lines of profiler output" were 
made a while back:


Today, on the same benchmark, r.bfg emits 32 lines of profiler output.
