[Zope-CMF] [dev] newstyle content creation

Implementing newstyle content factories[1] and using events for content 
creation[2] made it much easier to create content without using 
invokeFactory and friends.

These steps are still necessary:

- check portal_type exists (*)
- check allowType(portal_type) for the container (*)
- get factory name for portal_type (*)
- get IFactory utility for the factory name
- use factory for creating an object
- set object's portal_type (*)
- set other object attributes if necessary
- send ObjectCreatedEvent
- add the object to the container using _setObject

The steps marked with (*) are CMF specific.

Today I checked in a formlib based add view for File objects[3]. There 
is a new "Add File" action available if you use the "Experimental 
CMFDefault Browser Views" extension profile.

Any feedback is welcome. Not sure if this makes Bug #161664[4] obsolete.
