I'm a bit confused about how to use this. Does it require patch #4677 to be applied to my local copy of the NFA branch? I tried simply taking this snippet and creating a generic.py file inside django.contrib.admin. But when trying to use it, I get a NameError exception stating that "global name 'model' is not defined" at line 41.

Im guessing this code no longer applies, I get the following error:

ImportError: cannot import name _modelformset_factory
