I've added a new CallbackOnce constraint - which is only called once
per process() run.
It's callback routine is passed a list of values corresponding to the
list of names used when the constraint is defined.

$w->constraint( 'CallbackOnce', 'foo', 'bar' )->callback(
  sub {
    my ($foo, $bar) = @_;
    #do something

If the callback fails, the error is still set for each of the param
names. This can be handled better when we eventually implement point
2. above.

Hmm, I'd better checked if CallbackOnce handles missing parameters correctly...
