np!  appreciated :-)

as 'flexible' as Drupal is, I find the same lack of 'real world'
examples for anything but the simplest matters ...

"Pro Drupal Development" sums it up nicely:

    "If you come from a background where you have created your own
forms directly in HTML, you may find Drupal’s approach a bit baffling
at first."

Imo -- amen!

In DIY HTML/PHP, 'this' is all trivial.

In Drupal,

Creating a new form with Webform is trivial.
Creating a new form programatically via module takes a bit of reading-up..
Altering a core-form is pretty straightforward.

Building a non-standard workflow around core forms, using Drupal
internals and 3rd party module extension is ... a bit challenging.

Trying to contact the developers whose modules I'm trying to
understand/extend has been less than fruitful, receiving a sometimes
cool reception ... though I _have_ received offers to take my money
for paid consulting ;-)

This list, and Pro Drupal have been the best help so far.
