  This is not entirely true - the construct demo, as it installed itself
on my machine, takes the line by line ship-to:'s and writes them into the
individual order files in the orders/ directory.  Although I would like
this information to display in the GUI, I have not had time to pump it in
(yet).  So I just manually check the orders.  We get less than 6 orders
a day, so it isn't a difficult thing to look at.

  Eventually, when we finish educating our shipping people, I will have
the entire order with credit card and ship-to:'s get encrypted and
e-mailed to the fulfillment person. (but they're still complaining about
having to get adjusted to Eudora and the new web insterface for phone
