I have not used mpservlets with any form/templating tool.  Servlets
are pure python, so you should be able to import any module you like
and use it as you would any other python module.

The only caveat, re forms, is that mpservlets have tools to aid the
developer in processing form and query data.  Of course, servlets
doesn't FORCE you to do it its way, so should you decide to use some
other form generation/processing tool, just don't use query_vars or

Hope this helps.
