Setting custom fields via SOAP

This goes under the "seriously?!!" heading.

In previous version of the WSDL it was fairly simple to set a custom field. I'd even go as far as easy (though "intuitive" isn't even part of the language used by the twisted minds who created this API), but with the addition of custom attributes they decided to confuse custom fields as well.

ALL of that is required to set one custom field. How would somebody ever know to set the Type to "ContactCustomFieldsc"? Why couldn't we have stuck with c$something and let CBOs just start with their namespace instead of c (so cbo$something)? wouldn't that have been easier... and nearly ... intuitive?

This is primarily a rant, but it's also a reference, because there is no chance that I will ever remember all of that.
