Ok. I'll have a look at that.

Those adapters only exist, as the context of the form is the plone
site root, but the settings come from many different places. Some of
the forms redefine self.context, some of them use some property
helpers to deal with portal_properties and value conversions. So there
needs to be some form of intermediate layer in between, but I don't
care what it is.

That's what I thought.

Ah, you didn't fall for the obvious trap ;)
