Thank you for the short and long answers.  I know how to install it, I just
don't understand what will happen now if my client is using SSL and
AuthorizeNet.  Will he then receive the Order confirmation from AuthorizeNet
PLUS the encrypted confirmation from Interchange?  If so, this is double
work for my client, and I'd like to avoid it if possible.
Most gratefully,
Michael G.
