FYI this is impossible with the current architecture. It's also turning
out to be really bad with CCK, which is why they're trying to get the
CCK UI into core after all. And it's the same reason: Both systems are
really pluggable, and in order to work right, the pluggable systems need
their own additive UI bits. And you can't do that without a core UI for
them to add *to*.
