There should be a way to easy edit a form's label_tag output!

Well, for what i noticed, label_tag output is plain text, so, using a filter for the change would be difficult.
Something like: if you would like your filed help_text to become you label's title, so that a javascript framework
could get all your labels titles and make good looking "tip boxes" for them, how could one acomplish that?
It would be necessary to subclass ModelForm or Form, or even create some bad looking filters...bad solution.
A suggestion for the work would be that the label_tag output was not plain text, but an object, widget-like.
So that a object.widget.attrs.update({'title':value}) could be used through filters, or even a option for
the described behavior ( help_text as the label's title ).
I believe that would make the web-designers lifes easier.

If you need custom label attributes you ought to simply do that at the template level. Something like <label class="woo">{{ field.label }}</label>{{ field }}.
