Comment(by filosofo):

 I don't really care about the name, so please suggest one.  However,
 they're called "Custom Fields" on the post edit page, so it seems like the
 reasonable name to me.  The name of the db table the actual data is stored
 in is irrelevant to the person using the API, right?

 I think changing `get_post_meta` to accept 0 as an argument like that is
 going to have serious backwards-compatibility issues, because
 `get_post_meta` should fail when given an invalid ID.  And then they still
 have to add "true" to make sure they get a string.

 My general idea is to make the lives of template designers easier.
