I actually played with it a little bit yesterday to test the 
z3c.autoinclude functionality. It works! Now to use megrok.form, you 
just list it in your project's setup.py, rerun buildout, and off you go.

I've been doing a lot of work on this topic recently and have a 
reference field implementation based on zc.relation (which is the most 
recent incarnation). I'm not entirely satisfied yet with the approach 
but will be pushing this to the outside world in the future so other 
people can review it. The focus was to have a relation field that is 
easy to use; I couldn't find an implementation of that exactly in the 
current code.

I think this would be a great task for volunteers. Just finding an 
existing widget and having it included in megrok.form is a reasonably 
simple task. Writing new fields and widgets is harder, but we now have 
some examples. Proposals and discussions please on this list!
