class QuerySetSelectField(SelectFieldBase):
    Given a QuerySet either at initialization or inside a view, will display a
    select drop-down field of choices. The `data` property actually will
    store/keep an ORM model instance, not the ID. Submitting a choice which is
    not in the queryset will result in a validation error. 

    Specifying `label_attr` in the constructor will use that property of the
    model instance for display in the list, else the model object's `__str__`
    or `__unicode__` will be used.

    If `allow_blank` is set to `True`, then a blank choice will be added to the
    top of the list. Selecting this choice will result in the `data` property
    being `None`.  The label for the blank choice can be set by specifying the
    `blank_text` parameter.
