Thanks for this patch, it served its purpose well and showed that you put some effort into things.

I am still going to reject it for two reasons: It doesn't follow our code formatting conventions, and (more importantly), the given form is not that useful to users, because the error messages are mostly useless for them (i.e., don't help them understand what exactly is the problem and how to fix it). Implementing proper error messages which give some sensible context is certainly a worthwhile project but probably more than can be done with a quick patch :).
