Multiple form variable of the same name get lost.

<form action="./result" method="post">

<input name="moo" value="one" />
<input name="moo" value="two" />


request.POST[moo] is two

This would be fine if the other values were accessible at middleware level, unfortunately they are not, so it is impossible to prioritise them or process them into, for example, a list for the view to deal with.

This is how HTML forms work. If you have multiple <input name="moo"> elements, only the last one gets saved. The solution is to use different names for your <input> tags.
