Add custom fields in quick edit

Would be nice to be able to add a custom field and/or a post thumbnail from quick edit and the bulk edit.

From a user standpoint, if I get a new theme that uses a custom field called (thumb) but I have hundreds of posts, the only way to add the CF would be to edit the individual post. Would be great if the quick edit, and bulk edit had an icon (similar to the Add media icons) that let me paste a custom field value.

I think that as custom post types evolve this will have to be added as users will use bulk edit and quick edit much more.

Say I was using a custom post type for items in a shopping cart, and I wanted to apply a coupon code to those items only, instead of having to edit each one individually, I could bulk edit.

Similarly, if I wanted to reduce or increase prices on an individual basis, I could quick edit to change prices. this could be a plugin type of issue, but there should be a hook added to both quick edit and bulk edit that give plugins access to add additional fields to these areas.

You can already add whatever field you want inside the quick-edit box using an action hook:

Closing as this is plugin territory.

Agreed, this is plugin territory.

Can you please give me some info about the usage of the referred action hook?
