[development] getting the full $form in 5.x

I'm asking in the context of this issue:
I'd like to be able to collect the array keys for all the form values
that come about as a result of hook_form_alter. This way when a node
type is deleted, the corresponding variables could be automatically
deleted, rather than requiring modules to implement hook_node_type for
this one simple case. In other words, I'd like to maybe separate out
or duplicate the code in node_type_form_submit that saves/updates
items in the variable table.

If this is what you want then indeed you need two steps. As you have
not outlined what do you want to do with the form, I can't really
guess a better way. Maybe you want to do
$form = drupal_retrieve_form($form_id);
or even drupal_process_form($form_id, $form);
Eaton did a very good job in slicing up the form workflow steps into
separate functions -- but if you want half of a step, then you indeed
need do it for yourself.
