Just a note:  I've not been able to find, anywhere, docs on
how to correctly get checkboxes to POST through rack
and sinatra.

A colleague from the PHP world said, hey, you gotta
append '[]' to the name of the elements... like

 <input type="checkbox" name="toppings[]" value="pepperoni"
checked="checked"> pepperoni
 <input type="checkbox" name="toppings[]" value="onions" >onions
 <input type="checkbox" name="toppings[]" value="jalapenos" >anchovies

Without that trailing '[]'  on the name to coerce rack to store it as an array,
you are hosed - when I use "toppings", it's a string, but only the last value
checked.

Seems very odd, but heh, I understand the decision.

I thought I'd get the solution out in google land though.  I had no luck
trying to find it last night.
