I have been reading the docs for thee last 3 years my friend.
Could you please specify _which_ docs you are refering to here?
And what do they say that has a bearing on this?

Hm.. ok.
I have these 100 forms, all over the place. They live in user editable html.
To have to track down and alter them all is out of the question.
Yet the users expect the form fields to appear in their emails in the order 
that they put them on the page.

You seem to know formmail.pl, so you know that part :)

How to retrieve the field order from the http post request.

I am afraid the problem is as abstract as that.
No clever workarounds on the "single form level" will do.

Glad to hear it.

Tres Seaver told me that zope uses cgi.py
Does that mean that I could override dict in that file, or just for 
FieldStorage, with something like the Ordered Dictionary described at 
and request.form would keep the order?
Or better maybe just modify FieldStorage along similar lines?
