please visit the core examples section of the handbook:  http://drupal.org/node/36052

i believe you'll find that the system_user example and the system_themes example have what you're looking for.

also, if you haven't yet, please visit the general forms API documentation at: http://drupal.org/node/33338

at this point, i believe the doc team has covered most of the issues necessary to convert a module to the API.
