I know. These are the reasons why I chose zope.formlib:

- Zope 2 ships with zope.formlib, not with z3c.form

- zope.formlib is already used for CMF edit forms

- the work done for the zope.formlib based version is not lost if we 
switch to z3c.form, converting the forms should be easy

The checked in add form borrows one pattern from z3c.form: It doesn't 
depend on IAdding, the view is registered for the container.
