It depends if you need to manage separately posts and 'custom_posts_type' items.

If you need separate taxonomies (zeList was created with a classic
magazine+directory on the same website and the same WP installation
point of view), you're up to some dirty work :)

If not (category 'Growth' features both Posts and Custom), it may work
with some heavy filtering (ie including 'post_type' = 'custom' in all
queries), and / or some trust in end users (since every "item", post
or custom, will be subject to the same process)
