hmm. Good to know, I'll have to put that in the docs.

-> Formvalue 1 '..fieldname'...
-> Error message: 'no field matches'...
-> ** UNHANDLE EXCEPTION: no field matches 'fieldname'..

No good way. Obviously I need to put in a redirect_errors method, too!

Not easily. When I ripped off PBP to write twill, my intent was to
continue along the road of using it as a testing tool. So stopping at
the first error it finds is what I intended.
There's no reason that I couldn't make that behavior optional, however;
I don't think it will be hard to put in, either. I should be able to
get to it soon.
-> I really like the product now. Easy to use, fast and great support!
thanks for your suggestions!
