What do you want from a column in a backlog?  A backlog is a list of issues to be prioritised and then drawn into a sprint, or a list of stuff that needs doing (Which, once you've started to look at it, by definition, isn't backlog any more)

Perhaps they are looking for useful information to help them prioritize items like story points or business value.

I am also wanting to know how to do this.  I need it to help prioritize / categorize the tasks in the backlog.

I would love to see which issues are in which state of the workflow. It would be awesome to see if something is in progress (rolled over from the previous sprint) and if something is blocked. 

If you're using Kanban backlogs, you can put multiple status into it.

I would love to see this added as well. Adding custom fields makes the rows too tall, and you can't see as many issues per page.

Same here. I would like te see the status of an issue.
