If you put enable_form_tabbing = False on the form class, Plone won't 
turn the fieldsets into tabs.

But if you want tabs *and* fieldsets within the tabs, I think you'll 
need to write your own form template. The autoform fieldsets and the 
default template in plone.app.z3cform only handle one level of fieldsets.
