I think we should use a form-mail script *specific* (ie, hard-coded
values) to this page.  In particular, I don't like the user specifying
where the redirect is to - that is one of the usual security-fun
starting points.

From a XSS (Cross Site Scripting) point of view, there should be no
input returned to the user, if possible.  (Saves having to think of
every possible attack and sanitise it).
