As much as a reminder to myself as anything else, you would probably want
to put in catalog.cfg:

FormIgnore   mv_handling

Along these lines further, for better integrity and less chance of a
user screwing up your order routes, it probably makes sense to do in
the demo:

FormIgnore      mv_order_route

ValuesDefault   mv_order_route "__ORDER_ROUTES__"

ValuesDefault   mv_order_route "log_transaction main copy_user"

I will put this in the new "foundation".

  Mine doesn't. 8-) )
