Maypole moving from CGI::Untaint to Data::FormValidator

[ #28799 ]

After wasting a lot of time and effort trying to make CGI::Untaint and Class::DBI::FromCGI work together in a way that doesn't suck when building maypole applications, we are moving to D::FV.

The untaint_columns method will remain, but map to the appropriate D::FV, and alternatively you'll be able to specify D::FV profiles in place of using untaint_columns, or even provide it via a method of your class.

At the same time, we'll be providing a flag for each field, saying whether it's required or not, so your forms can specify require fields and validate them without any effort.

Unfortunately this is likely to push 2.11 back by a week or so, but I think it's worth spending the time to make it work right.
