Okay. Had a quick look your implementation and I think I understand  
it! 8-)
Had trouble with createAndAdd and finishCreate but now I understand  
them. Shouldn't there be default finishCreate in the  
ContentAddFormBase so that it's obvious we have to overwrite it? It's  
taken me such a while to get my head around the ProxyFieldProperty  
stuff that I've made all my new content stuff work without it but I  
can see you've used it elegantly. I also understand what you mean  
about making a menu for this stuff. It would be nice to have some  
configuration for this so that we don't have to rely on actions such  
as AddFile, AddImage, etc. Would that be something like listing all  
views that provide a specific interface?

BTW. got bitten by the five.localsitemanager dependency with my 2.10  
install. I've just reread the posts on this and I didn't quite  
understand them. Things worked fine, of course, when I dropped CMFCore/ 
src/five into my lib/python folder but I'm guessing this is something  
that's going to be phased out and that we're expecting users to be  
able to install the package separately themselves. Is this assumption
