Fields Have Labels

This doesn't entirely solve the problem but lcstackBrowser's controls
palette allows you to create multiple objects in one drag/drop operation.

In this case, you would option-click the label control, option-click the
field control, then drag either one of them to your card.  You get a prompt
for how many rows/columns of the label/field pairs you want to create and
can also specify spacing.

I think what's really needed though is something that works like the
label/showName properties of a group, plus a way to position the label
left/right/below/above the control.  That would elminate the need for a
separate control.  It would also be great if the label could have its own
set of text properties so you could, for example, change the label text
color to indicate a validation error.
