I have a patch here that moves the goto out of the _submit functions  
and into drupal_submit_form.

The issue is that we allow you to have multiple submit functions, but  
the way it's coded now the first submit
function you call very likely redirects you.

The patch introduces a return value of the path to be redirected to  
for _submit function.

It's almost done and I will upload it soon, my question is ..

do you think it's a realistic default to force a drupal_goto() after  
all successful form submissions, as 99% of
forms seem to use that.

There's also the case of some forms misusing the _submit function to  
trigger a preview form which i need to
look at still.
