Sylvain said that he is workking on a proposal about refactoring the 
CForms API in the end of the "CForms view model?" thread and also 
proposed to have we could have more reflection friendly repeaters. Vadim 
proposed to use XMLizable in the API instead of direct seting of content 
handlers. With these changes the jx-macros probably will be quite 
straight forward.

I would propose that you wait and see.
