custom interface to populate multiple objects

was wondering if anyone has done a custom interface web page so that on one page user can enter mulitple records in various objects. if so - can you direct me in right direction as to best practices, time frame etc.
any input is greatly appreciated!

Well, I think this is a fairly common technique.  The question seems broad enough to prevent any sort of straightforward answer for "best practices."

Fundamentally, the SFDC UI is is an object-based presentation - 1 tab per object type.  Often, real-world users are looking for a more process-based presentation - they come to the system to perform some action, which may involve creation or update of many objects.  So there is an almost limitless variety of custom interfaces one might write "so that on one page, [a] user can enter multiple records in various objects."
