Custom Meta Data Tags in MP3 Files ?

Is there some fairly easy way to add one or more custom meta data tags or fields to MP3 files ? Will iTunes allow one to create custom fields (or rename existing fields) in MP3 files ?

Not with iTunes, but you can use Audiograil and a multitude of other programs like it:

While the custom fields and metadata will be in the files, it won't be accessible by iTunes specifically, which is pretty rigid in terms of the fields it pays attention to.
