This is really great stuff. Combined with the quickstart guide I was
able to convert 2 of my modules today to make use of the new forms
API. The catch is that they were modules that used the _settings(),
or_nodeapi() or user() hook, which makes things a bit easier, since
you don't have the concerns of executing the form :).

There still needs to be a bit of documentation on how the
_nodeapi('form') and the user('form') hooks were changed in regards to
the return values, because that was the hardest part I did today.
