Sorry for being flippant. I think you are right there may be merit in
being able to specify even a "onsave" process. Rather than "onsubmit",
with what I am working at present. Generally I prefer to have
expressions evaluated at the beginning of the processing, so variables
can get their values early, which may influence the way the process

the one example were I appreciated a way to process after saving the
page was with email notify,  and Pm cleverly uses
register_shutdown_function to call the notify function after the page
is (successfully) saved.

Has anyone an idea why this does not work?

$fx[$name] = preg_replace("/\\{\\$\\$(\\(\\w+\\b.*?\\))\\}/e",
     "MarkupExpression(\$pagename, PSS('$1'))", $value);

With preg_match the pattern matches fine, but preg_replace does not go
