We'd like to be able to associate fixed things (project, Sample, sequencer 
used) with user's FASTQ files, and we'd also like to allow users to associate 
dynamic, site-specific stuff with the sequencing run. Currently, users track 
their runs using a CSV sample sheet, and often they add columns to that sample 
sheet for their own information.

Is it possible to associate that information with the FASTQ file when it is 
placed in Galaxy? I know about metadata, but the supported fields look like 
they are fixed in the code. I was hoping for a solution where the users do not 
need to modify the Galaxy code to pull this off.
