[development] Hello from another developer/Want to add some features

We need all of the layers.

The CCK layer is about three things:

- data to and from the database
- content type definitions - configuring content types and field 
types through the web (and, I would add, field attributes to be 
interpreted by Forms API)
- loose coupling between field types, content types, and semantic functionality

The Forms API layer is about the mechanics of translating internal 
field representations into HTML and dealing with standard 
browser-based validation and submission.

I would add to this a third layer, the views layer, which has to do 
with the structure of the output. What part of the content type do we 
want to view, with which criteria?
