To be fair - this is the way Gerda always used it.  The actions
attribute with the possibility of having different functionality per
form (and field) *instance* were all my additions (copied by they way
from Data::FormValidator and FormFu).   I am starting to regret coding
that - it seems that it complicates the machinery too much.
