Probably (:input image src='url...':).. I'll see if I can add this to
the forms code.

I'm also still trying to figure out the markup I want to use
for <select> menus.  Perhaps:

   (:input select name="olist"             # maybe (:select name="olist"
      "Option 1" 
      +"Option 2" 
      "myopt_3|Option 3" :)                # maybe "myopt_3=Option 3"
                                           # maybe "Option 3=myopt_3"

which would produce

    <select name='olist'>
      <option>Option 1</option>
      <option selected>Option 2</option>
      <option value='myopt_3'>Option 3</option></select>

I'm open for suggestions.
