[twill] Twill form parsing error depending on br tag formatting (missing form fields)

Got it. I had a few issues getting it to work as I kept getting the following error message, followed by a message saying it couldn't call tidy:
The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
Looks like this may be related to how Windows handles file connections. I to make twill create separate temp error files for the twill call redirects, e.g.
_tidy_cmd = "tidy -q -ashtml -o %(output)s -f %(err)s %(input)s > %(err2)s 2> %(err3)s"

Yes: install tidy and it will automatically happen ;)

If you specify 'configure require_tidy +' then it will *require* that
tidy exist before the scripts are executed.
