Patches to fix this will be gratefully accepted ( and applied ;)

If anyone can work on a patch to implement nested fieldsets - that'd be great.
I think all that would be necessary to support backwards compatability
would be to make sure that if the outermost widget doesn't contain any
elements, then there shouldn't be an outer fieldset.
The current behaviour should be considered a bug.

Patches that includes both code and tests will get applied quicker.
Patches that only include code won't get applied until someone else
gets the time to add tests.
