Unfortunately, I cannot help you here, since I have been using z3c.form 
recently (of course). z3c.form is better documented and provides the hooks I 
think you are looking for here. For example, the context for the form -- 
called content within z3c.form -- can be overwritten by implementing a custom 
``getContent()`` method. If you do that, you can store your info in a session 
for example.
