Batch and simplified editing of Archetypes

Project description

MegamanicEdit is a tool which enables constructing objects where
fields are "dynamic", for example in GrailTact, a user can add several

interested in something can be greated from a landing page (see
GrailTact also here).

Has been tested and found working with StringWidget, RichWidget,
LinesWidget. Assumed to work with everything except the

Thanks to Bluedynamics' AtMultiEdit for giving a good example.

Portions of the templates/skins are taken from the Archetypes
product, which is

NOTE: Currently only known to support text fields and areas.

Use the 'Add portal content' permission for all project content types,
so that it integrates nicely with the megamanic template object class.
