In essence, this is what BlogIt does, using PTVs formatted with PmForm. 
The key functions are bi_HandleBrowse() which handles the 'viewing' of 
the form (with no action specified, but that's easy to implement), and 
then bi_HandleProcessForm() which handles the action when the user 
submits new values from the page form.
