Ok, well I definitely won't pursue the blind
route.  How would an HTTP Proxy behave in this
situation?  Surely it wouldn't parse out HTML. 
Also, not that this matters, but there will never
be images or links, just the relative url in the
action form tag.  

I have also considered the case that this
situation has no elegant answer.  If so, I will
let this die. -
