A KeyError is raised by when saving a custom form (created with form_for_model(inst, form=CustomForm) if it has less fields than the model it refers to. As custom forms are a handy way to expose only a subset of the available fields, checking for the field in the form's clean_data before setting its value in the model seems a good idea.

Ugh, not form_for_model(inst, form=CustomForm) but form_for_instance(inst, form=CustomForm). Newforms are melting my brain...
