We have forms where some fields are only requried if other fields have a
specific value or if a specific submit button is pressed. Currently we
are solving this with a custom mechanism using validators. This approach
is in fact very ugly and requires some changes in the cforms.

I think a clean way would be to define these "rules" on the form and
process them after the values have been read from the request. So
basically I would like to have a configuration in the model like:

<required required-id="a-widget" source-id="some-other-widget"
<required required-id="a-widget" submit-id="some-submit-id"/>

(Don't quote me on the correct syntax or the names used)
