[wp-hackers] Help with adding extra data into a post

It seems that I haven't looked into custom fields in enough detail.

I was planning to use an extra table to store my extra "rows" of data fields
because I will need to retrieve them (the "rows") i various order, like
registration time order etc. One or several "rows" of data can also be added
when editing the post later so several "rows" of data belonging to one post
can have different registration time.
Is the custom fields suitable for that?
