Now you are building some kind of table/list with
form-field-name: form-field-value - am I right?
how is it supposed to handle checkboxes, radiobuttons
and select fields?
One possible workaround, if you dont want to touch
ZPublishers form handling would be to run a script
to not only update the forms target (formmail.pl -> zopeform)
but split every form element from
<input type="text" name="foo" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="body.name:records" value="foo"/>
<input type="text" name="body.value:records" value="" />
which you easily get as list of name/value pairs in
the form variable "body".

Moderate work and you can even add some sanity checks :-)
If you can provide some typical samples of the HTML you
are facing I believe you even can get help with the
