I've thought about weeks ago and came to the conclusion that there must
be better ways that integrating Turbine (maybe) as a generator.

I would instead suggest you to talk to Jeremy on this list. His is
trying to specify a taglib for form handling. Turbine screens are mostly
made to paint a (html) form (and that's why I thought about implementing
Turbine as a generator). But I've learnd that XML might have other
solutions to that problem. But (as a hint for Jeremy) maybe we do not
have to think in too big pictures and be pragmatic in making a form
taglib simple (because it mainly addresses to html).

This make absolute sense. It could also be done at the XSLT step when
transforming the xml into html.
