Very good idea. However I think, that all we can handle automatically is
just hidden fields. Everything else (like text, password, radio etc.)
must be provided by hand, or at least by list of possible choices and a
way to pickup one (random, next, etc.)

Note: it would be cool (since we are far away from GUI) if instead
payload="" one could also use key1="foo" value1="bar" key2="order"
value2="123", and flood would be responsible for creating
"foo=bar&order=123" payload. This is how curl collects data for POST
body from command line -- very handy.

into some array @ round_robin_postproces and use them in next POST
request @ round_robin_create_req (plus a few minor fixes here and

I'm trying to track down some other glitches in flood, so all I can do
is include this request in my personal TODO list...
