I've been successfully able to implement my own add Views for some of  
my own objects and it definitely makes sense to have let  
contentAddView do the work. For my objects I don't seem to need  
anything specific in the view so always implementing a method such has  
_create or maybe _handle_add doesn't make sense. Maybe a lookup to see  
if such a method is implemented for adapting any additional adaptation?

if hasattr(self, "adapt_form_to_object"):

Ha, should have looked more closely at the code! You're automatically  
generating names as required. Maybe the lookup should also cope with  
forms where an id is supplied just as you've done with filenames?
