Metadata API! Also, per-sheet webhooks


This one's for the coders out there. Fieldbook now has a metadata API that lets you read the schema (sheets and fields) of any book. The new calls include: * Get book info * List sheets on a book * List fields (and types) on a sheet This could be used for: * Creating a custom input form for a sheet that automatically includes all its fields * Creating custom notifications that automatically include all fields * Building a third-party integration that works with arbitrary customer data See [documentation in GitHub](https://github.com/fieldbook/api-docs/blob/master/metadata.md). Also, as a little bonus, webhooks can now be registered on a per-sheet basis, to get updates only for that sheet, not the whole book. This also simplifies the callback format a bit. See details in the [docs](https://github.com/fieldbook/api-docs/blob/master/reference.md#webhooks). Enjoy!
