You can certainly set the value, but I don't think it would do anything
at that point.

It's a chicken and egg problem, by the time the ActionMap is called the
page to display is already determined (and stored in
$CGI->{mv_nextpage}).  If you want to change that page simply set
$CGI->{mv_nextpage} to whatever you want and return 1 from your
ActionMap sub.

See <http://www.interchange.rtfm.info/icdocs/config/ActionMap.html> for
more info.
