My $0.02:

I agree here; I don't think the lack of sophistication in the 
(zope.app.form.browser) widgets and/or (zope.schema) fields is due to 
zope.formlib. Nor doesd zope.formlib prevent the development of more 
sophisticated widgets and/or fields.

Personally I like zope.formlib - but maybe that's an acquired taste.

I certainly do see the use for megrok.z3cform-like projects though!! 
(Or, when there's a general consensus at some point that the default 
forms story in Grok should be based on z3c.forms, I'd still see the use 
of a megrok.zopeformlib :)
