I added a new configuration directive named allow_in_form to the CVS-Tree
that accepts a list of variable-names that may be set in search-forms and
can be used in output-templates.

This could be used to allow the people that do not have access to the
config-files to put their own text on general output templates that use
those variables e.g. for headings or back-buttons, ...

It could also be used to allow the overriding of configuration directives
in the search forms that could otherwise only be changed by those that
have access to the config-files.

However some variable names are not substituted correctly in the output
templates. I couldn't find out the reason of this misbehavour yet.

For those of you, that are already registered at the BSCW workspace, the
patch and a problem description are at

Any hints?
