Also I have gone through the interchange code and have scene that they 
are not using the Bussiness Online Payement System. What I do see in this 
is that they are probally very wise to stick to a system that they are in 
control of. However what would be a wise compromise is to have a "local" 
payment gateway that could work with a system such as Bussiness 
Online::Payment. Basically, "Local Payment Gateway" would trigger a 
simple script that would be a preproccesor for a generic "Bussiness 
Online::Payment" system.  That preproccesor would recieve all possible 
variables in the "Bussiness Online::Payment system" after it has the 
variables it would discard this and that and then push whats left to the 
defined payment gateway. (I hope all of this is understandable as I am 
learning programming and am not a programmer)
