Thanks, Kevin.  I've modified the test you wrote, made it pass, and  
committed it (revision 72232).

The answer is that you need to have choice fields bound; and the way  
you bind fields is to have `getFieldContext` return the value to be  
bound.  You only need this for context-bound fields: only Choice  
fields, and collection fields that use them, AFAIK.

The common case is that you just want to return the item, which is  
what I did in the example.  There are many other possibilities,  
though--we use this for some funky aggregated search results, if I  
recall correctly, for instance.

I hope the test changes make clear what you need to do.  Thanks for  
improving this!
