[Twisted-web] gronking nevow forms

Just trying to get a handle on how forms in nevow work.
Reading through it looks like there are two main ways to express forms;
as loose properties, and as methods - or:
name = annotate.String()
age = annotate.Integer()
def edit( self, name=annotate.String(), age=annotate.Integer() ):
annotate.autocallable( edit )
Properties make it easy to present the existing values of an object -
but as far as I can tell, they're a one per form kind of thing. Methods
on the other hand are good since as it's easy to throw a bunch of
elements in a single form; but it looks horrible trying to load them up
with existing data.
The only way I've found is in the pastebin example:
formDefaults = context.locate(iformless.IFormDefaults)
Is there a way to show more than one property in a form + have an action
triggered when the property update is over?
Is there a more intuitive way of loading values into a method defined
form than the pastebin example?
