Filter for adding css classes to an widget

As a widget class is something related to the T in the MTV django design, it should be possible to change a widget's class through
a template. So, who's the fellow that deals with the T? The designer! Not necessarily the programmer. And that someone should not need to know
python programming. The designer should be capable of adding a class to a widget in a straight forward way. A filter seems like the reasenable

Something like this should work:

form.field|filter:"class1 class2 class3"

and give the proper output. I suggest a simple name for the filter, something like mclass ou css.

Triage Stage: UnreviewedDesign decision needed

Hrm... I get the argument but I'm not sure I quite see the necessity.

Pushing to design decision, perhaps you can bring this up on django-dev?

Aren't there already multiple tickets open with variations on easy ways to add CSS classes to parts of a form?
