Questions about creating custom fields via API (metadata.wsdl)

1. Using the metadata.wsdl, can I programatically create custom fields on standard objects?
2. When putting up an application on the AppExchange..
If I create custom fields in a standard object, those fields are not generated automatically
when the user downloads the application. Is that correct?
1. yes

2. no, i believe you can package custom fields on standard objects.

Thanks for clarifying those questions.

I've been able to create some custom fields through the API.
This is a neat feature!
