 > I am modifying the Walker in my plugin to only add the following action
 hook right after the description input:
 > {{{
 > <?php
 > // This is the added section
 > do_action( 'wp_nav_menu_item_custom_fields', $item_id, $item, $depth,
 $args );
 > // end added section
 > ?>
 > }}}
 > Then I am adding my custom fields to this hook. If we all do this in our
 plugins (those of us with plugins that rely on replacing the
 `wp_edit_nav_menu_walker`) then our plugins can play together. People will
 just have to run the risk of hitting the $_POST limit... a risk they are
 already taking now. If this hook is ever added to core, the plugins should
 seamless be forward-compatible.
