Do you have a sense for whether many (any?) plugins expect this kind
of scenario? In providing a service to my customers, I'm expecting to
allow them to configure named fields with the assumption that there
will be a 1-1 relationship of names and fields. I wonder if I'm
setting myself up for a customer backlash with this restriction.
I'm thinking mostly of the obvious cases for custom fields like
"mood", "music I'm listening to", etc. Seems like if it has a name,
most customers will only expect for there to be one.
