And -for once- come up with a good database model (entity relation diagram)
before the code/patch?
If you want to do something this big good, your datamodel must be good. And to
design a complex datamodel, simple PHP code won't cut it.
Because of this, I have just put my initial thoughs online with the ERD. As I
state in the small description, I am clueless when it comes t drawing such
Antoher point I'd like to make is that we should not rush this in, but maybe
should make this is a coding session at the DrupalCON? Where we can design
the datastructure first then code it, and then create a nice future-proof
patch from it.
Thigs I'd liek to see, for example are
* hooks to alter field_instances (hook form alter-simplified)
* hooks to alter field behaviour (should GoldMember see field X)
* hooks to add fields to the field_types (library)
Prolly we can think of a lot more. And coming up with a good
power/flexibity/performance balance requires thought, and a good route. Not
some rushed in patch.
