I worked around this this by not using a "cancel" submit button but
simply a link to the calling page. I would prefer a "Cancel" button,
but the link is not that bad.

To display the form (remember: comes from GroupHeader) on "require"
errors, I keep the form request in a hidden form parameter and extend
the $FmtPV code to add also post parameters.

BTW: Is there a simple way to get something like
 array_merge($_GET, $_POST)["useform"];
in PHP older than 5.4?
Excuse my ignorance, I'm a "plain old C" programmer.

Nevertheless I would like to learn other (cleaner?) methods to handle
structured data.
