Now I am designing a form based on two models. I cannot use ModelForm, because I need to support "splitting" data into two models and versioning of one of these models.

So I manually create form fields based on model fields (repeating such arguments as max_length, what is against DRY).

I want given a model field to create its corresponding form field automatically (like to what ModelForm does, but for individual fields rather than for the entire model).

So, please factor ModelForm into smaller parts to support such usage.

Nothing prevents you to use even multiple modelforms within single HTML form.

If you need help with using Django in such a case, either consult #django IRC channel on Freenode or Django user group on google groups.

Closing as won't fix.
