Calibre & Stanza: Series in Title over iPhone wifi sync

I have just started using Calibre and so far am absolutely loving it. I am wondering however if it is possible to have the Series and Series number in the title when sharing books over wifi (online catalog/Calibre Content Server) to Stanza on my iPhone. I don't really want to have to go and modify each title by hand as I have lots of ebooks.

I have been able to do it using metadata plugboards using iBooks and iTunes sync. However iBooks is terrible and why would I plug in to sync when I can just do it via wifi?

--
My setup:

Desktop running Calibre
- Windows 7
- Latest Calibre release (downloaded yesterday)
- Lots of ebooks

Reading Device
- iPhone 3g running 4.1 (jailbroken)
- Using latest Stanza

plugboards haven't been implemented for the content server. But I don't understand why you need series in title if your browsing with stanza. Why not just use browse by series.

The problem is once the books are downloaded in Stanza. When I browse I would like to be able to see the books in their order in the series.

ah you are downloading large collections to stanza, now I see. Well as I said, plugboards haven't been implemented for the content server.

Are there any plans to implement plugboards for the content server?
