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*.
