Groups were written to support your use case specifically. I think they even put fieldset tags around each group, but I would have to check the template.

Heh, indeed. Though now that I see it, I notice that it's using the non-existent <fieldgroup> tag, rather than <fieldset>. I realise it's mostly used in the test, but you may want to fix that. :-)

One other question: I want the Group's to be instantiated and populated at run time. That is, I don't want a class for each one, but rather I want to be able to distribute fields across groups via various adapters looked up by the form.

Is this sensible? Should I instantiate Group objects directly and set their fields etc? Or should I do something else?
