i think this is the right behavior - how else would a plugin like
flutter have grouped custom fields?
i don't know how many of you are familiar with flutter, but here's an
let's say you have a group called reviews, and that group can be duplicated.
let's say that it has three fields:
and if two journalists from the same magazine write a review about that
particular post (which is actually a book, or a movie, etc)
then too, you'd have the same situation:
*meta_id* *post_id* *meta_key * *meta_value*
001 001 reviewer_magazine bar
002 001 reviewer_magazine bar
and flutter has its own table in which it stores relations between
custom fields and groups, so this works jus fine.
