To make


more generic, it probably shouldn't prefix the returned string with an asterisk. This would give template authors more control over the formatting of error strings.

I know it's old, but it still (AFAIK) applies. Let's get rid of the asterisk! I think the diff needs to remove the extra space at the beginning too.

Would be backwards incompatible at this point. Making this change in your own code is easy enough, as it's possible to use a custom Error class on forms and the method can be subclassed.

How do I make a custom Error class on my form for 'non_field_errors' so that I can use {{ form.non_field_errors.as_text }} in my template without the silly '*' throwing off the qì (Ch'i) of my site?
