[wp-hackers] Custom Post Types and Media Attachments

I'm using the "Custom Field Plugin" to achieve the same thing (WYSIWYG 
Editor on custom fields) for customers where the design needs seperate 
"editing frames" on one page. This plugin works fine with the media 
library and allows to insert uploaded images directly into the custom 
meta field using the "insert to post" button.

Maybe you can take use of that, or reverse engineer this functionality.

Hope this helps.
