Yep, that does it!
I guess I should have realised it, but I hadn't made the connection between the
'all_meta_types' method and the add products drop down.

Now what worries me is the construct:
	'if meta_type['name'] in self.selected_meta_types:'
if self.selected_meta_types was a dictionary, I could understand it but it isn't, its
a list.  This should cause a 'not integer' error.  There is something here I haven't
grasped and I'm probably being dumb, so please enlighten me.

Thanks, Richard
