The attatched patch for Form.js checks the type of the parameter in 
function/constructor Form(uriOrElement).

If uriOrElement is an instance of org.w3c.dom.Element, the form is 
loaded directly from the element. If not, it is loaded from the uri as 
before. The type checking is done using instanceof.

I'm quite new to Javascript, so you can probably think of better ways 
to solve this. But I've tested it and it works. It's very useful since 
I'm creating a multiform wizard but want to keep all the forms in the 
same xml.

Is there any possibility for this to be included in 2.1.6? (It's just a 
small fix, and shouldn't break existing code, but then again, smarter 
people than me have said that before and got burned :-)
