      Description

      After discussions with Gavin, I'm adding in the following enhancement request:

      the ability to store "metadata" about a field in a record, and the ability to retrieve that metadata from a record structure (or possibly from a field in a dataset using that record structure).

      Uses for this would be things like: defining the type of data stored in that field (SSN, DOB, etc) or masking info/ permission information about a field that could be used later for masking, filtering out columns, intelligently formatting columns, etc.

      The format is up to y'all; the structure would ideally be very flexible for people to use as they needed, something like a key(value1,value2) structure.
      I suggest a simple string key
