I agree. Each time I get a Zope update I have to edit Converters.py
What I want is something like :empty_as_none
So a float, int or date field will be passed as None if the fields are blank,
rather than having the converter raising an exception.
ignore_empty doesn't work, because then the field isn't passed in the
Record at all.
I use SQLDict as the backend for all my forms (wow, it's great), so None
really is needed for every field if its blank. If I have ignore_empty, then that
field doesn't get updated in the database, so if someone wants to blank
out a field, they can't do it.
