Where next for formencode comment 000

FormEncode doesn't do the Javascript thing, though it's always been something I've meant to add. I've gotten a bit more experience with Javascript since then, so it might be clearer to me how to do it. It's another reason that validation requirements shouldn't be simple functions, but objects with state, with someplace to put the necessary Javascript-generating methods.

I think that at the moment the library is portrayed in the documentation (and implemented) in a general way that still requires a fair amount of bridging to use usefully in an application. The pieces are there, but I think it's still a framework issue to make them usable.
