Thanks for this effort! I think it would be very cool, though, if we 
could first have a clean, not-Zope2-infested port of z3c.form to Grok 
:), in other words, if we had megrok.z3cform and then made it work in 
Five (e.g. in five.grok + plone.z3cform).

I know that other people from the Grok world have wanted an official 
port of z3c.form into Grok as well. Perhaps they and you can work 
together on creating megrok.z3cform first. Then you would only have to 
worry about the Zope 2 specific bits.
