Following example 18.3.1 and 18.3.2 from phillkon's book, i'm trying to

and i used old-zope2-like-code. Probably i could try to do smt like
that, but i'm very curious to see how can i use formlib in such cases.
The question then is, is it possible or would it make sense to do
something like this ?. Do you know about a sample code that could be
Any comment or hint would be very appreciated.
