We have a similar situation for shipping. If a customer purchases any
item that includes shipping, shipping is included on the entire order.
If not, then there is a shipping calculation. We use a field in products
db to flag whether or not an item includes shipping.
So your widgets A would have the flag set, if the catalog sees the
flag it uses the quantity pricing. I can see that getting complex
real quick as soon as they ask for the next permutation. :->
We'd do that with a CommonAdjust routine.
