Feature Request: Article Metadata & Looping

Our site (as I mentioned before) is very document heavy. Indeed, some site are little more than document repositories with some blurbage about each document.

In Domino you can create an article (I'll use CityDesk terminology) that simply contains a document, allowing you to add all the metadata you want to it.

So you have something like:

file: latest_submittal.doc <- this would replace Body
headline: The Latest Submittal Forms for 2002
keywords: forms, banking, processing
teaser: This is form XJY2002b and replaces form XJ72001z

This would allow me then to create a script that pulls all documents from a given folder, thus extending CityDesk's functionality far beyond that of a "blogger" and make my life a hell of a lot easier.

I realize this is a niche thing, but it seems (to the layman) to be relatively simple to implement.

Sorry, the title for this thread should be "Document Metadata" or "File Metadata"
