Yeah. it's definitely going to embrace the CCK work and get some of
it into core. Essentially the input/output/validation layer, but not
on the data layer (ie: the actual saving and reading from the database).
The part that makes the forms api so complex right now is the fact
that we are representing two different data structures, within a single
1 : field definition, which is essentially what we are validating
against, and populating from the request..
2 : structure, which is essentially fieldsets and tables and things.
The single most complex function in forms api is _form_builder()
which essentially recursively steps through the form array, and creates
a field definition array from the element definitions.
