Allows users to save drafts of PloneFormGen forms in progress

pfg.drafts adds support for Plone users to save copies of PloneFormGen forms in progress and restore the saved values later. This removes the need for users to fill out a lengthy form in one sitting.

The package adds a new display option for Form Folders, called "Form View with Drafts". If selected, a message is shown prompting the user to save a draft of the form. (It also adds an additional button at the bottom of the form which does the same thing.) If the user clicks this, they are presented with a registration form to create a site account with which to associate the saved data. After registration, the form is saved.

When the user returns to the form, if logged in, the form will be repopulated with the saved values automatically. If logged out, the user can click a link to log in and restore their values. Then the form can be submitted normally when the form is complete.
