Lucky for me that some clever person came up with these modules! ;-)  
Anything else I need to look out for?

Not sure if this is entirely the correct way but I do not need an  
essentially trivial object: a dictionary addressable by X, by Y and  
(X, Y).

This will be the storage for an editable table. I guess I should  
probably be looking at zope.formlib or z3c.form for this but looking  
at the documentation I'm not sure if the dictionary schema is  
suitable as this is for an object that will be dynamically resizable.

This is going to be my first implementation from a Python object in  
Zope using browser views so I'm quite excited!
