Interesting. That appears to be pretty good for a quickie. That does look like it covers a lot of what I usually do with the param() method.

However (and this goes back to wanting an RFC type thing), the param method does more. I believe that you are able to set values (not too bad to implement) and I believe that you are supposed to be able to have multiple values (array refs) per parameter. Again, I don't believe that those would be too difficult to implement off of what you presented here, but I wonder what other features I am missing.

The Data::FormValidator (and I keep going back to that because it is the package that made me think about this) uses an object with a param method, but I don't know what features of the param method are used. Probably the most basic like you described above, but a complete param() method would be desirable.

Thank you (both) very much for your time. If you have any more ideas, I would appreciate them.
