I don't know if you want to consider another language, but if you use
PHP, you can assocate checkboxes with names like "row", "row", etc.,
and then refer to those variables in your PHP form-handling script with
variable references like $row, $row, etc. Avoids having to come
up with a zillion different variable names.
