The custom renderer is useful when you want to use a different but
reuseable technique to display the form elements, e.g. to replace the
table with a definition list enumeration. The class MACssRenderer is
such a custom renderer (I just notice that it has a stupid name).

The custom component is useful when you want to have an unique editor,
e.g. you want to place every form element and label exactly within a
complicated layout. The login-form on seasidehosting.st is an example
for such an component.
