[ic] Donation: FedEx Ship Manager tag

 While working on a customer's Interchange site I developed some code for 
integrating FedEx's Ship Manager system. It's a wrapper around 
Business::FedEx::DirectConnect, but you can use it to query shipping prices 
(drop-in replacement for [fedex-query]), and obtain tracking numbers and 
printable labels.

 This was done as Work-For-Hire for Jason Gold and Hi Profile Productions, 
Inc., but I've obtained permission from the customer to donate the code to 
the community under the GPL. It still needs some work, particularly to get 
International shipping functioning seamlessly, but we're pretty confident 
that domestic addresses with most FedEx service types will work. 

 FedEx has some hoops they want you to go through before they grant you access 
to their Ship Manager server, but there are full details in the 
documentation. The short story is: using Ship Manager is free, you just need 
a FedEx account number and some patience to go through their certification 

 The tags can be downloaded at:


 This, of course, is Use-At-Own-Risk software.
