Sent before I was finished. Gmail needs to take the send button out of the
tab index!!!

So provided that I have named one button with name="add_entries" and the
second name="submit_entries" could i just do the following in my dancer app?

post '/entries_form' => sub {

    if (defined param('add_entries')) { # the source of this submission was
the add_entries button

         # qualify and summarize addition
          redirect '/entries_form';

   } elsif (defined param('submit_entries')) {

     # update submission to make them final
