Not sure which mailing list my questions belong on but for the time
being I'll ask them here (any list subscribers feel free to tell me to
take this discussion offline).

This userschema package looks very cool and it's nice to see all the
cool ways you can produce schema's from user contributed data (ie csv,
html).  But I'm curious to know what sort of use cases you have for the
end-result schema's ... simple formlib form generation? content type +
edit form (via formlib) generation?
