Well, a forum is just as much a permanent record as a mailing list. And
since they same questions tend to come up more than once, I do like
having a searchable medium like that. But I'd come hang out in #spyce
on freenode or whatever if you wanted to set one up. :)

No, not really. I don't think the power of that sort of pseudo-widget
is worth the complexity it adds -- although I _would_ like to add
validation tags to Spyce eventually, so this specific use case would be
covered there. You'll probably just have to add conditionals the hard
way until then.

Glad to hear it!
