xhtml: Unable to generate valid HTML with radio buttons

the xhtml function "radio", like any other form widged generating
function, takes one parameter, which is used both for the name and for
the id. For the radio buttons, one usually has multiple widgets with the
same name. Having also the same id is invalid HTML.

Of course this can be avoided by changing the id or not using the
"radio" function. But I think it would be more sensible to change the
behavior of the form widgets to _not_ add the id attribute by
