The ObjectWidget is a widget for an IObject field.
This field is used for attributes which provide a own
schema and hold a refenece to a pyton instance 
providing this schema. (does this make sense?)

Probably a sample explains it better.
The attribute door in the sample below is an Object field.

class IDoor(zope.interface.Interface):
    """A cars door."""

    color = zope.schem.TextLine(

class ICar(zope.interface.Interface):
    """A car."""

    door = zope.schem.Object(
        title=u'A cars door',

The ObjectWidget is now responsible for render an input
widgets in an EditForm for the color attribte of the door.

Adam, is this correct?
