I'll have to get back to you on that, I've just noted some real weirdness in
Order.pm thatI've asked Mike about, coz even _I_ can work out whats going on
:-). Also It seems that a Route counter gets incremented even if you ask it not
to in the catalog.cfg by adding "Route whatever increment  0" to the end!!!!

However my gut tells me that your set up won't be affected, it the call goes
through to counter_number() and the files does not exists and your not doing
some really complicated mall stuff then you should not be affected. It only
becomes a problem it you are running n shops from n different domains with n
different routes but you want all shops to be able of handleing all the other
shops products. I.e. purchase products from shops on different domains but
chechout in just one of them and have all your products dealt with correctly.
