Default How can I track a "custom" nutrient?

I'd like to incorporate my WW point values into the mix - does anyone know how I could go about tracking a "custom" nutrient with each food item?
DEVELOPERS: Please consider adding the ability to do this! Thanks!

Hmmm.

Off the top of my head, I suppose you could do one of two things:

1) Use one of the nutrient spaces for "points" (for instance, make your Selenium spot into a "points" spot) and simply realize that's your points for the day... I can see that this would be a problem, however, in trying to add up your points and hitting a certain number, as the graph would want it as a % RDA

2) A lot of people make a blank custom food for LUNCH or BREAKFAST or DINNER so that they can see how their meals break up. I suppose you could make a
"blank custom" with a name like ONE WW POINT or 5 WW POINTS and enter it after every item. Perhaps slightly tedious, but it'd be an at-a-glance reminder of your point value for the day?
