Proposal: a TWiki::Data::InTopicTable class

Whilst refactoring in the RegisterCgiScriptRewrite, I notice code to turn HTML tables into a hash: it makes it available as both name-value pairs and as an ordered list.

It occurred to me that there are plenty of in-topic tables, and that we should have an internal library to do common things with them.

  1. Do you agree we need such a library?
  2. Does this functionality already exist elsewhere? (e.g. in a plugin)

Isn't that what FormQueryPlugin does?

I believe the FQP only applies to Forms, i.e. metadata, not to tables in topics.

InTopicTableVsFormFields debates the scenarios that dictate the use of a table vs a form.

Anyone know of a way to get the EditTablePlugin to externalise the schema used for intopictables? If we had this we would be well on the way to having MultipleFormsPerTopic
