Like, e.g. "interview date"? :-)

This seems to be a more a zope than plone question, and I don't know
how to do it.

This is easy, ish.  And I've already done it for /epc/interviews/.
What I did was (1) download the plone 1.0.5 source (2) in the ZMI
upload CMFPlone/skins/plone_forms/folder_listing.pt to
/epc/interviews/index_html (3) hack at this a bit.

I'm planning on staying up as long as it takes tonight to get the site
ready for public consumption, and suspect #plone on freenode is going
to be on the receiving end of a lot of questions...
