Stéphane,

i'm working on what sounds to be a pretty much identical issue
currently... i'm attempting to use formlib and jsonserver.  i've been
throwing around a number of possible solutions, but none that i'm
comfortable with so far.  i agree, i don't know how to access my
form.Form class programmatically, but i don't want to sacrifice all
the utility provided me by formlib (errors, checking of invariants,
etc, etc).  i've considered having my exposed json-rpc methods pull in
the params explicitly, and then wrap them back up into formlib-style
data (if it's possible, i haven't had a chance to try yet), and then
use the handleSubmit and applyChanges logic out of formlib directly.

but i'm not happy with that solution.

i would like to find a way to build my forms agnostic of how they're
to be used, and associate jsonrpc:view's to a particular content area
that can access the forms i've displayed.  i've been really happy with
the ability to build formlib forms into viewlets, and use them
where/how i want...  but if that keeps them from being ajax-y
accessible, it will present a significant hurdle :\

if anyone has any suggestions, or has solved this kind of problem
before, i'd really appreciate pointers.  if i stumble across anything
that seems useful, i'll post it back out.

Pete
