I *think* (may be wrong) that pointing to options.php auto
stores/updates options in the db from what have been POSTed, so you
don't have to write your own update function. The (big) downside to
this is that it writes each setting in a single DB entry, which I
don't like.

(So I'm going with action="" too)
