How about this:
You have the FORM spec in an XML file with the [lets say] .pyfrm
extension. This extension is associated with a special mod_python
handler [mod_python.form].

The spec file, specifies form elements, required and optional enties,
valid value types, ranges etc. It would be a nice option if the form
can span several pages.. wizard-like. The spec file would also 
specify what happens at the end (call a python function or...?).

Then I'd be able to insert the form even in plain HTML using an iframe...
<iframe src='/newuser.pyfrm'>you need a new browser</iframe>

does pytohn's PSP have a internal url include functionality? Like
apache's SSI "#include virtual"?
