Provide API functions that plugins can use to add custom field GUI.   
Text, checkbox, radio buttons, etc.  Ability to specify a filter  
callback for data validation.  Ability to specify default data for  
required fields.  Automatically take care of a custom nonce form  
field to prevent updates on non-wp-admin firing of the save hooks.

I throw together a lot of plugins that hinge on custom fields... but  
it's a royal pain to code an interface for each one.  So I usually  
don't. :-)
