#14263 closed New feature (duplicate)

Allow fields to support custom double-underscore lookup methods

Rather than continually adding specialized builtin lookup types (e.g. #2616), there should be a good way for custom field types to support their own custom lookup types. Currently this is sort of possible, but requires monkeypatching the global singleton registry of lookup types, which is not ok.
