If it affects the cforms block because of the need for new features, 
then that is a good thing, as Tim's use case is a very advanced one that 
could be beneficial to all CForms users.

And placing the particular use of these features (sitemap editor, etc) 
in a separate block allows to isolate them from the main CForms core, 
which is a good thing also, unless they could be simply considered as 
advanced samples and thus placed in forms/samples.

Finally, unless this required a major rewrite of CForm, I don't see the 
need for a separate branch.

So go on and commit, Tim!
