Hello Mike,

Thank you very much for the information.
I think I can implement the upper layers of what I plan pretty fast.
I'll go ahead and see what happens. I was hoping to avoid making changes
in the store, but based on your information I fear that has to done.

I appreciate the help on which test scenarios I should write tests for.
If you, or anyone else, have more of them, keep'em coming :)

I'll report back on my findings as soon as possible, hopefully in a few
