Starting to sound like the old Pmwiki around here with some great
ideas floating around. Very interesting.

Another idea however might be to have an optional parameter in the
expression markup that controls when it is executed. For example, the
default is onload, but it could be set to onsubmit, or perhaps onsave.
Perhaps other options. So {(time onsubmit)} would give a different
value from {(time)}. Or, what might be easier on the php side of
things: {onsubmit(time)}, or {onsave(time)}.  Just thinking out loud.
