  1. The frequent calls on this forum for Priority and Tag fields,
  2. the sage resistance of the senior talmudic authorities to hard-wiring priorities (and tags?) into the architecture,
it would be wonderful to have (sortable) user-defined columns in the manner of Omnioutliner.

Possibly a bit ambitious for release 1.0, but it would allow the public to get what they want without imposing an unaesthetic architecture on the purists.

It would provide, for example, a way of importing priority and tag fields from iGTD without committing Omnifocus to having such fields.

Even better would be arbitrary meta-data with the option to expose each particular field in a column, or just in a meta-data inspector. For data that one might store with nearly every item, say tags, the column would be useful. But for data that might only apply to a small number of items it would be better not to spend the screen real estate on a new column. An example of this would be Mail message URLs. These would be manipulated by and used by scripts, so the user doesn't really need to see them.

Taking it a step further, a meta-data field like Mail message URL could optionally be mapped to an "indicator column". The indicator column would merely shows the presence of the related meta-data, much like the paper-clipped note icon does now.

Omniplan custom fields catch some of this.
