One more choice is there inherit the layer from Rotterdam.

I am going for the "custom forms with templates".

My reasons:

1. We need to discourage macro based skinning
2. Core skins like Rotterdam is very complected
3. We need to show the path to content providers

Please let me know if you have any suggestion.

I am finding it difficult to write a good story with zope.formlib & macros :)
