Not sure you can call it 'preferred' but IIRC z3c.form has been
developed with that particular use case in mind (and many others)


also gives pointers to how z3c.form is used, extended, how it is
used in Zope 2 (plone.z3cform - don't be confused by the name: this
isn't Plone specific, it's "just" contributed by the Plone community)
and to applications using it.
