I suggest we use the dict context (implement getContent() and return a 
dict) instead of all those adapters to get/set values as we do presently.

Also, use trunk of z3c.form, plone.z3cform and plone.app.z3cform for the 
time being - important cleanups have happened.

I can at least help, though I'll need to see closer to the actual 
deadline where I can own it.
