Lol, This is actually pretty funny because this is basically the direction
we've been going in for a bunch of things (see the new search UI).

The approach is basically "hide fields" especially those that are empty.

To which beltzner told me "we can do this better". Reed said something
similar, so it's funny to see the same approach used again.

I'm somewhat tempted to say we should have a generalized way of marking some
fields as "additional details" and other fields as main fields that way we
can implement the "show/hide" concept across the board (on the search page,
on the create page and on the edit page).

I hope some of the folks at moco have been paying attention to the work
we've been doing with the search page and the attachments page and realize
that we're all on the same page.

I'm happy to write an extension that implements the UI in the screenshots
this weekend if Justdave is interested in it for BMO. I think for general
use things like whiteboard might not be as used as much unless we're going
to say "the whiteboard is how people tag stuff", which is basically how BMO
uses it.

Any thoughts?
