I've just spent a few hours trying to get an editable GridField working on the front-end. After much searching I gave up and asked IRC channel, where one nice person told me that it doesn't work. Is that the case? Or am I missing something?

If it doesn't yet work, does anyone have any ideas of the best way to implement that sort of functionality on the front-end in SS3? I just (!) want an editable has_many DO grid. I could do it all manually but hoping there's a nicer way.

If it *does* work, I'd be grateful for some pointers to code examples, or docs (pretty sure there are none though).

Thanks :)
