	<!-- Current list of stuff -->
		<html:form blah>
			<td><html:input blah</td>
			rinse, repeat
	<html:link to the save action/>
Then the action you submit to takes the input params, folds, spindles and mutilates as appropriate,
eventually adding it to the list in the session.
The save action, grabs this list from the session and then folds, spindles and mutilates the
list as appropriate.
