XF 2.0 Custom thread fields - form position?

Is there any way to make the custom thread field input areas appear before the main post body?

The output can be controlled by display order and the before/after message option but it seems like the input always ends up after the post?

Logically if you want the output to appear before the main post body then that's also where the input forms should appear? Having them all below the main post body means a lot of the uses for custom thread fields then look a little strange as there's often fields that need filling in before getting to the main post.

If the answer is no, can this please be moved to suggestions as "Make custom thread field input and output positions consistent and controllable" :)

I would also be in favour of having the fields before the main post body. Alternatively, an option could be added to control whether you want it before or after the main post body.

I would be using those form fields as the basis for a support ticket system, and it would be imperative for us for them to appear before the post body.

I think making it consistent with where the output appears would at least be a good start. The output is controllable by display order and before/after post so the input fields should follow those settings.
