Our method of operandum right now is to perform actions with json- 
views and use grok.View for presentation. That way we can assemble the  
page in one call for setup and use AJAX to update parts of the page  
and to perform actions. It works very smoothly and allows all the  
convenience of formlib. To receive parameters from the json-call we  
use self.request.form.get('xyz', None). It makes it easier to design  
because the pagetemplates can be updated without restarting the server.
