Agreed, from a Grok perspective: if there is no shared interested
anymore in the zope.app.* packages, Grok will need to take up
maintainership for those itself. In a way we already did by upping the
versions of several of those package already.

The zope.app.* packages that really are in use for a vanilla Grok-based
application are zope.app.applicationcontrol, zope.app.appsetup and
zope.app.debug and zope.app.wsgi.

If there would be a strong drive from the Grok community to have Python
3 compatibility, they (and that includes me :) ) should port those
zope.app.* packages or build the equivalents.

I'll make note of this on the Grok dev list as well.
