This is probably a tricky one; I tend towards the expressiveness of  
lookup tables and arbitrary function names rather than strict naming  
conventions, but I realize that I might be in the minority. ;) I  
wanted to use <form_id>_builder() or <form_id>_form() as our standard  
'constructor' function names, but the use of <form_id>() ultimately  
won out a while back.
