[Chicago] Forms + widget support layer

I'm in the market for a light weight component that sits somewhere between inbound HTTP requests and page/HTML generation that provides stuff like this: 

* Encoding and decoding of widget/field values to and from HTTP/HTML land 
* Field value validation 
* Form validation 
* Enough flexibility to support custom HTML+JavaScript widgets 
* Light weight controller facility 
* Not tied to a particular templating engine 

z3c.forms is very much in this vein, but seems to come with sundry other z3 baggage. Maybe this isn't as bad as it sounds. 

ToscaWidgets kinda does this. 

And of course, Django has this sort of thing built in. 

I'm looking for something along the lines of Webob -- stand alone, very light touch, but without enough support to make my life coding forms and integrating widgets much easier.
