That will never work, there are always callback constraints and  
things like that.
I'd prefer to use Ajax and validate server side using the original  
Perl constraints.

Yes it's a few more requests but will minimize user frustration,
don't you hate it when you submit a form and it just reappears with  
fields marked red?
Server-side Ajax validation would eleminate that completely.
