/**
 * Creates a field.
 *
 * This function does not bind the field to any bundle; use
 * field_create_instance() for that.
 *
 * @param $field
 *   A field definition array. The field_name and type properties are required.
 *   Other properties, if omitted, will be given the following default values:
 *   - cardinality: 1
 *   - locked: FALSE
 *   - indexes: the field-type indexes, specified by the field type's
 *     hook_field_schema(). The indexes specified in $field are added
 *     to those default indexes. It is possible to override the
 *     definition of a field-type index by providing an index with the
 *     same name, or to remove it by redefining it as an empty array
 *     of columns. Overriding field-type indexes should be done
 *     carefully, for it might seriously affect the site's performance.
 *   - settings: each omitted setting is given the default value defined in
 *     hook_field_info().
 *   - storage:
 *     - type: the storage backend specified in the 'field_storage_default'
 *       system variable.
 *     - settings: each omitted setting is given the default value specified in
 *       hook_field_storage_info().
 * @return
 *   The $field array with the id property filled in.
 * @throw
 *   FieldException

/**
 * @defgroup field_purge Field API bulk data deletion
 * @{
 * Clean up after Field API bulk deletion operations.
 *
 * Field API provides functions for deleting data attached to individual
 * entities as well as deleting entire fields or field instances in a single
 * operation.
 *
 * Deleting field data items for an entity with field_attach_delete() involves
 * three separate operations:
 * - Invoking the Field Type API hook_field_delete() for each field on the
 * entity. The hook for each field type receives the entity and the specific
 * field being deleted. A file field module might use this hook to delete
 * uploaded files from the filesystem.
 * - Invoking the Field Storage API hook_field_storage_delete() to remove
 * data from the primary field storage. The hook implementation receives the
 * entity being deleted and deletes data for all of the entity's bundle's
 * fields.
 * - Invoking the global Field Attach API hook_field_attach_delete() for all
 * modules that implement it. Each hook implementation receives the entity
 * being deleted and can operate on whichever subset of the entity's bundle's
 * fields it chooses to.
 *
 * These hooks are invoked immediately when field_attach_delete() is
 * called. Similar operations are performed for field_attach_delete_revision().
 *
 * When a field, bundle, or field instance is deleted, it is not practical to
 * invoke these hooks immediately on every affected entity in a single page
 * request; there could be thousands or millions of them. Instead, the
 * appropriate field data items, instances, and/or fields are marked as deleted
 * so that subsequent load or query operations will not return them. Later, a
 * separate process cleans up, or "purges", the marked-as-deleted data by going
 * through the three-step process described above and, finally, removing
 * deleted field and instance records.
 *
 * Purging field data is made somewhat tricky by the fact that, while
 * field_attach_delete() has a complete entity to pass to the various deletion
 * hooks, the Field API purge process only has the field data it has previously
 * stored. It cannot reconstruct complete original entities to pass to the
 * deletion hooks. It is even possible that the original entity to which some
 * Field API data was attached has been itself deleted before the field purge
 * operation takes place.
 *
 * Field API resolves this problem by using "pseudo-entities" during purge
 * operations. A pseudo-entity contains only the information from the original
 * entity that Field API knows about: entity type, id, revision id, and
 * bundle. It also contains the field data for whichever field instance is
 * currently being purged. For example, suppose that the node type 'story' used
 * to contain a field called 'subtitle' but the field was deleted. If node 37
 * was a story with a subtitle, the pseudo-entity passed to the purge hooks
 * would look something like this:
 *
 * @code
 *   $entity = stdClass Object(
 *     [nid] => 37,
 *     [vid] => 37,
 *     [type] => 'story',
 *     [subtitle] => array(
 *       [0] => array(
 *         'value' => 'subtitle text',
 *       ),
 *     ),
 *   );
 * @endcode
