This simply moves the logic for setting is_bound, data and files into a method which enables setting the data after form initialization. This is a backwards compatible. This makes it easier to not have to initialize a form twice in view. It changes from this idiom:
def view(request): if request.method == 'POST': form = Form(request.POST, request.FILES) ... else: form = Form() ...
to simply this:
def view(request): form = Form() if request.method == 'POST': form.set_data(request.POST, request.FILES) ...
This reduces clutter and redundancy when there are a lot of form arguments passed.
