[development] Forms API II: Return of the Chx (you really need toread this)

I think it should be possible. For now, it's very useful to have a flag
*in the form itself* that indicates that it's a programmatic submission
(ie, isset($form['#post'])).
It's definitely something to explore in a subsequent patch.

This is awesome, but do we really need the '#post']['edit'] for every
element ?

for shorthand, couldn't we just do

$edit = drupal_retrieve_post('user_register');
$edit['name'] = 'robo-user';
$edit['mail'] = 'something';
$edit['pass'] = 'blah';
drupal_process_form('user_register', $edit);

You could have this as a wrapper of the functionality you mentioned
above even.
