I just responded to a separate but similar suggestion. The form
elements, including the buttons, are all generated in a separate function.
I am currently passing about 5 variables into this function and I am a
little hesitant to pass any others. I am not sure about complexity,
performance, etc. in passing so many variables into a function. Please let
me know if anyone has any ideas on this. I doubt that this is happening,
but I would really like for the code to be as easily maintainable as
