There are hooks that will have to be changed in 1.4 for this, if we
get to reinventing the invoice section.  To create the custom field,
SELECT * FROM create_custom_field('ar', 'cost_center', 'text'); --
text is the only type supported.

Then when you create a cost center field, on your form it will be
automatically populated and saved.  I believe it should be present in
the template too if you want as <?lsmb cost_center ?>.
