Although it doesn't yet support creating a form from a dbic result,
DBIx::Class::HTML::FormFu does support populating a form from a dbic
result, and updating / creating dbic from a form.

Regarding creating a form automatically (although I haven't yet done
anything about it), I thought of asking on the dbic list whether
anyone else is using column_info() to provide more advanced hints
about which form field type to use, and possibly constraints to use.
I don't know whether mst's reaction uses anything like this already.
It would be good to have a convension of some sort.
Is that the sort of thing you'd be interested in?

Also, do you want svn commit access?
