It would be a big win from the users perspective to get even a partial 
solution towards custom fields get into the system for the next release. 
This would lock-down a supported schema with a migration path in case 
the approach were to change. All these caveats about applying the custom 
fields patches because there is "no guarantee that this will be the way 
we do it" are holding some people back from trying it out.
