How about something like this in config.php, before including pmform.php :

  if(@$_REQUEST['action']=='pmform' && @$_REQUEST['cancel']>''
     && @$_REQUEST['successpage']>'')
    Redirect(MakePageName($pagename, $_REQUEST['successpage']));

Then, in the template, you set (:input submit name=cancel value="Cancel!":)

Alternatively, you may add in the template:
 (:input hidden cancelpage Group.Page:)

and in the above snippet, use $_REQUEST['cancelpage'] instead of

AFAIK PmForm was created *because* there were other form processors (ZAP, 
Fox). There are no plans to kill PmForms at this time.
