Hell yeah, you need to read the book. When I say "read the book" I
mean it, check this out:
fcorrea at fcbook~/z3c.form/src/z3c/form: wc -l *.txt
So, I am not going to say that its impossible to create a convenience
package for it but yeah, it requires people to have a very good
understanding about it.
We have scratched out a a very rough convenience package of what a
megrok.z3cform would look like but we got stuck on the naming thing
and namespace stuff and ended up doing nothing.
So, is there anyone working on "cave-hiding" style and will come up
with a complete package all of a sudden or can we just check in a
convenience package that will provide add, edit and display forms with
some skin setup for now?
I don't think we need to figure the skin/layer stuff right now....we
just need to have something so people can look at and improve it.

I can share my experiences with that if needed.

Well, I am NOT a core developer but I can contribute if needed. Even
with code, use cases/experience.
