In your flowscript, you can create your own ValidationError object and 
explicitly set that on the apppropriate widget.

What we did was to define our own type of exception which included 
information about all validation errors that were found, then wrote a 
simple(-ish) flowscript function which handled looking up the relevant 
widgets, creating the error objects and setting them into the widgets.

Hope that helps!
