An individual post follows.

After reworking my code to use HTML::FormFu instead of the FormBuilder plugin (which didn't wind up taking that long, actually,) I could not find a way for HTML::FormFu to do client-side validation. My paradigm of GETting or POSTing a form and then redirecting to serve back JSON was completely ruined.

In the end, I found a work-around to do additional server-side validation using FormBuilder. The built-in validation patterns of FormBuilder don't serve my needs (I have to take some input, do a request against another web-service, and go from there.)
