Formula fields in "Multi-Line Layout" for Opp Products / Service Contract Line Items



I would like to add a formula field to the Service Contract Line Item "Multi-Line Layout".  The formula makes a calculation based on a field on the "Product" object which you select on the previous page.


You can't add formula fields, however, because (I assume) that when you are viewing the Multi-Line Layout, the Line Item records have not actually been created, thus Salesforce does not perform the calculation necessary for the formula field.  However, Salesforce is able to pull in other information from the Product object for this screen, like the List Price, as part of the default functionality.


I want to know if there is a way around this, without overriding everything with a VF page.


Thank you for your time!
