One approach that seems to me to hold some promise, or at least pieces
of it, is described here

  "Redirecting Users After Submitting a Form in Drupal 5 and 6"


In Drupal 6, one method is:

Create a custom module custom.module and place this code in it:
function custom_form_alter(&$form, $form_state, $form_id) {
  switch ($form_id) {
    case 'contact_mail_page':
        $form['#redirect'] = 'thank-you-page';

Looking in ./modules/search/search.module, i see,

 * Process a block search form submission.
function search_box_form_submit($form, &$form_state) {
  $form_id = $form['form_id']['#value'];
  $form_state['redirect'] = 'search/node/'.

which refers to the 'redirect'.

Right approach with the right pieces?  If so, unclear -- atm -- how
they fit together.
