You can set foxsuccess= and foxfailure= options in a fox form.
And Fox does some error reporting, shown by using th e(:messages:)
markup. The problem here is that if you use redirect, all these
messages will not show! The redirect page just shows as-is.

So do we want options to redirect to a number of dedicated error
pages, cancel page, success page etc? And do the messages need to be
routed to thes epages? It gets more and more tricky...
