Yeah, that is how it's planned to work for version 0.5.0. Revelation
will ship with a default set of about 10-15 account types, but you will
be able to change, add or remove account types as you want. I haven't
worked out all the details yet, but that's the goal anyways.
Not really sure what you mean by an attribute to allow the field to be
copied or not. When you specify custom fields, you will be able to
choose the field type, such as "secret" (passwords etc),
"userid" (usernames, customer ids etc), "string", and more. These will
determine how the field is handled - how it's displayed and edited,
whether it will be copied to clipboard when clicking "Go to", and more.
