Let's put it this way: Jifty is my vision of a sane way to build
web-based applications in perl. I've taken what I've learned over the
past...yow...decade and tried to extract out the commonalities and
complexities so that what you're writing is _your application_, not a
bunch of boilerplate code for dealing with the same thing time and time

Custom fields, transactions and attributes don't currently figure into
this. I mean, they're all easy to do, but they're not exactly common to
every application.
