class BetterModelFormMetaclass(BetterFormBaseMetaclass,
class BetterBaseForm(object):
    ``BetterForm`` and ``BetterModelForm`` are subclasses of Form
    and ModelForm that allow for declarative definition of fieldsets
    and row_attrs in an inner Meta class.

    The row_attrs declaration is a dictionary mapping field names to
    dictionaries of attribute/value pairs.  The attribute/value
    dictionaries will be flattened into HTML-style attribute/values
    (i.e. {'style': 'display: none'} will become ``style="display:
    none"``), and will be available as the ``row_attrs`` attribute of
    the ``BoundField``.  Also, a CSS class of "required" or "optional"
    will automatically be added to the row_attrs of each
    ``BoundField``, depending on whether the field is required.

    There is no automatic inheritance of ``row_attrs``.
    The fieldsets declaration is a list of two-tuples very similar to
    the ``fieldsets`` option on a ModelAdmin class in

    The first item in each two-tuple is a name for the fieldset, and
    the second is a dictionary of fieldset options.

    Valid fieldset options in the dictionary include:

    ``fields`` (required): A tuple of field names to display in this

    ``classes``: A list of extra CSS classes to apply to the fieldset.

    ``legend``: This value, if present, will be the contents of a ``legend``
    tag to open the fieldset.

    ``description``: A string of optional extra text to be displayed
    under the ``legend`` of the fieldset.

    When iterated over, the ``fieldsets`` attribute of a
    ``BetterForm`` (or ``BetterModelForm``) yields ``Fieldset``s.
    Each ``Fieldset`` has a ``name`` attribute, a ``legend``
    attribute, , a ``classes`` attribute (the ``classes`` tuple
    collapsed into a space-separated string), and a description
    attribute, and when iterated over yields its ``BoundField``s.

    Subclasses of a ``BetterForm`` will inherit their parent's
    fieldsets unless they define their own.

    A ``BetterForm`` or ``BetterModelForm`` can still be iterated over
    directly to yield all of its ``BoundField``s, regardless of
