[Twisted-web] Rendering error messages

I have a form where the inputs various values, which I then check for
validity. If there are errors, I'd like to re-display the form, with
>From the examples, I see how to use pasting to get the error into the form:
<td><input type="text" name="name" /></td>
def render_aPasting(self, context, data):
That works great. The problem is, I initialize self.nameError in __init__:
self.nameError = ''
And then set it in the formless autocall if there is an error:
if self.schoolDb.exists( name ):
self.nameError = 'School already exists!'
The problem is that when the page is re-rendered, __init__ is being
called again, which means the errors get cleared.
My instinct is that maybe I should use session variables, but before I
got an do that I wanted to make sure there wasn't another, more
correct way to do this.
