I see that FormBuilder (and C:C:FB) primarily ease the creation, (request)
maintanence and validation of forms.

Unless I've missed something C:C:FB won't do automatic form generation. By
that I mean you are not able to provide a database table and have a form
automatically generated from it or expect a submission from the user to be
automagically sent to the database. You have to make that glue yourself.
