Just like FB outside of Catalyst, only those fields that you explicitly 
define in .fb show up in $c->form->field().

If you want other CGI params, you must use cgi_param() explicitly (see 
also the "keepextras" setting).

It is safe to generate tables/etc from what you define in fields(); that 
is the intent. You may want to check out formbuilder.org for some 
examples (these are outside of Catalyst, but just translate $form to 
$c->form and it's the same).
