I do like it. So much in fact that its already in CgiccExtended as of August of last year .. ; )

std::string operator[](std::string paramName)

Though I took the idea from MizCGI (and really from Perl's access of CGI elements via a hash with $cgi->Vars()).

I also implemented it as a method, since I don't really like to overload operators unless absolutely necessary:

cout << cgi.param("favoriteCheese")

Some of the other things I've done to simplify access form data in Cgicc can be seen here:

I really should work on CgiccExtended more, but I've been busy for a long time.

I was thinking about how it is essentially a pain to simply print out or grab
the value of a single form element using the STL iterators:
      form_iterator name = cgi.getElement("name");
      if(name != cgi.getElements().end()) {
         cout << "Your name: " << **name << endl;
If people didn't care whether or not the element was actually found, something
      cout << "Your name: " << cgi["name"] << endl;
would be infinitely easier. Of course, this assumes that only one element
called 'name' exists.

Does anyone think this would be a valuable addition?
