additional notes field in builder

Sometimes I want to have more information in the builder to remind me of details about a table or field that I don't want visible in the generated app. As everything in the Description field becomes displayed data, it would be useful to have a Notes textarea for tables/fields.

I would like to revive this suggestion. I just went back to a project from a few years back. As I couldn't put developer notes into the Description field, and as I'd since misplaced or erased or otherwise could not find my notes... it would have been VERY USEFUL to have had app/table/field notes in the builder.

Also, it would be useful to have these output to a file in xml or json format -- maybe notes.xml/json -- so we would have reliable access to them from within custom code. I would be relatively easy to embed information in the "Notes" field that our custom code could parse.

I think adding a Notes field shouldn't be difficult. Maybe exporting Notes on generation requires a bit more effort. Anyway, if we could at least get the Notes in the builder, that would be terrific.
