[Zope] Making pythonscript changes to formulator fields persistent

Trying to change various properties of a few hundred formulator fields
For example assigning to field.values['required'] = False.
This seemed to work, but of course was not persisted, and disappeared
gradualy. Quite magical to see :)
Tried to take a copy of values and "overwrite" values with the changed ones,
to trigger the presistence machinery, but that is not allowed.
The same goes for setting field._p_changed = True, and accessing
I can use field.manage_edit() but then I have to masage all the data from
field.values into "request format" to have it accepted, otherwise I get
"required" errors, or values gets deleted.
What to do?
I guess some developer has worked hard to prevent me from doing just this at
some point, but why? Do I need to write a product to do it?
Is anyone at all using this crazy development model where "semi trusted users"
do stuff in the ZMI???
But I digress..
If anyone knows how to solve this I would be less frustrated for a while ;-)
