When I do [% CGI.end_form %] I get an arrayref with ('<div>',
<input type="hidden" name=".cgifields" value="colours"  />, '</div>',
'</form>').  The hidden input has to do with CGI.pm's handling of "sticky"
form fields, in this case the selected "colours" checkboxen.

I like the macro idea, though I would change the name, as mentioned 
elsewhere.  I don't use Template::Plugin::CGI much, but when I do, I've 
always just said something like [% CGI.end_form.join("\n") %].  I join on 
newline so the HTML source looks a little more readable.
