Er... it's architected wrong? :-)

As I understand the situation, the extensive discussion we've been 
having on the subject of custom field recently, here and in the 
newsgroup (which has been a good thing, definitely) hasn't come to a 
definite conclusion on exactly how to do them... but I also understand 
that the current patch doesn't work like any of the front-running 
candidate ideas. But I could be wrong about that last bit.

This is getting a bit silly. We've had several discussions which have 
petered out. We need to sit down, either in a dedicated "we don't stop 
until we've designed this" email session or on IRC, and work out a 
detailed design. Then anyone (including Chris ;-) could go away and 
implement it.
