Nothing generic -- and it's not rocket science, either.  Or very glamorous.
 I simply have a template macro for creating my <form> tag which also
includes the hidden field with the token id.

Then part of form validation processed used for every post I check that the
token was provided and is valid.  The token is either in the database or in
memcached.  (I have a form_posted() method that does this check, along check
for the correct method (PUT or POST) .)
