Thanks to both Andrew and Otto for their very useful replies.

To the other poster who asked why I don't create a custom post type, it's
because I've got 20,000+ item that aren't considered post-type data in
anyway. Imagine just wanting to let people search your song list in a
widget, vs reading tons of details about it.

If I'm understanding custom post types correctly, it seems a bad way to go
just to store 5 tiny bits of data about 20,000 items.
