 Up to the 2.6.5, the following works :
 - Use a page permalink as action for a form (eg. embedded into the sidebar
 or in another page)
 - $_POST catches form data without problem
 - In order to do so, you have to create a page template for your theme
 with the correct PHP code to get the data

 The same procedure doesn't work anymore in the 2.7 (and the 2.7.1).

 - $_POST is always empty

 This feature is very handy to create simple forms (eg. contact form)
 respecting Wordpress native mechanisms.
