[Zope-CMF] Formlib and multiple forms

I'm not sure if I'm going about this the right way but I'm struggling  
with using formlib to generate a group of forms / set of repeating  
elements in what is effectively a grid. I think that either I need to  
use a collection or a set of forms with different prefixes but I'm  
still struggling a bit with this.

I have a concert object type that takes place in several cities so the  
repeating element would be the city with the additional information  
such as date, address and price. Effectively I have two schemas and  
while I could, I suppose use two different objects (Concert &  
Location), it is important that for the application that the Location  
information for all venues can be edited at once: effectively a list  
of dictionaries with each key corresponding to a field. Is it possible  
to extend a schema like this? Alternatively, and I think this probably  
makes more sense: how to do I get the form to be extended repeatedly  
with the same interface but a different prefix?

Guidance much appreciated!
