collective.captcha is basically just a view, so you can use it
anywhere you like. I developed c.c for a customer project where we
used it in a formlib form, hence the included formlib integration, but
the captcha view itself is completely separate and integration with an
Archetypes field should be exceedingly simple.

Just use the formlib widget code as an example:


It simply looks up the view and calls the .image_tag() and
.audio_url() methods of the view, and uses the .verify() method to
verify the user-supplied string against the captcha.
