This does not, however, seem to be the case on my default install
of the construct demo.  The CC# is stored in 2 places in the
catalogs/consruct tree - all unencrypted (until the user sets up pgp).
The first place it goes is into the logs/tracking.asc file, all order
get appended to this file. The second place is in individual order
files in the orders/ directory.  To prevent this you have to
specifically disable it. (I just re-wrote the template for what info
gets stored.)
