So, you have a region defined ok, right? And you _can_ get at Jifty- 
 >handler->cgi to get your argument (though we'd normally be running  
CGI params through a Jifty::Action)?

I _think_ that the automatic region submit stuff will only submit  
action parameters, not all form fields (though Firebug will tell you  
for sure)

I think Sterling explained the as_button/as_link stuff, so you can  
render the Jifty->web->link as you want.

If you explain what you're doing i na bit more detail, I can help  
fill in missing pieces. (Though I'm offline from 20 June to 4 July).
