I agree that a good understanding is necessary and that doing the right
thing concerning conveniences is a significant challenge. It's a
challenge we know about with the Grok project though - after all some of
the things Grok already made more convenient *also* require quite a bit
of understanding of Zope 3.

I didn't realize we got stuck on the naming thing. megrok.z3cform it is,
What namespace stuff is this?

Please check in the convenience package for now! Perfection should not
be the enemy of good. :)

I fully agree. This is a base people can work from and experiment with.
We can always improve it from there.
I am very sorry if I was the cause of stopping progress on this package.
In my discussions on layers and such I was trying to figure out how we
might go about resolving this issue, not intending to block any other
progress at all!

This is great to hear. I'm very glad you've been doing work on this
Fernando and would encourage you to continue! I am still looking for
opportunities to try out z3c.form myself in a project, but eventually
I'll get some. :)
