We don't even need two EditForms, since using "editform="
with no page name will bring up the built-in form definition.

Same here -- one can just do setprefs= to eliminate the preference
settings. (Same as one can do setskin= to eliminate a default skin.)

It was added in beta48.... but I didn't put it in the ChangeLog
or document it yet because I'm not convinced it's the right way to
handle this -- i.e., it's still a "provisional" feature.
But to use it, simply add '&editform=Group.FormName' to the end of
the ?action=edit url, and the page will be redisplayed using the form
given in Group.FormName.
