Actually yes, that's part of the re-design, cause it's been growing way 
too big. But first, I want to avoid having to edit my products meta
by hand, cause I have to do this for about 20 fields (lists). Same for 
other fields that repeats.

So do you know what I'm doing wrong with the external DB lookup?
