Quite right. I misread the original post. Sorry about that. Obviously,
that would be a worthwhile feature. 

There was also a patch pending regarding using forwards in the
html:form. Did we decide anything about that?

On one hand it stretches the use of the ActionForward quite a bit. On
the other hand, it would allow all the references to be "logical" rather
than to any type of URI. Might also be handy if we implement "smart
forwards" later.
