If you want to add tiny snippets of text to your site, manageable by the admin backend, you would use either django-chunks or django-flatblocks. However, both of them have one problem: you are limited to a predefined content field; a "text" field in chunks and a "title" and "text" field in flatblocks.
django-generic-flatblocks solves this problem as it knows nothing about the content itself. You attach your hand made content node (a simple model) where you can define any fields you want.
