AFAIK it is still be possible to buy an inactive product with the right
GET or POST - there's nothing to stop you adding inactive products to
the basket it just stops them appearing in searches.
I guess you would have to catch this in the basket code, but I haven't
bothered as I think it would be hard to do accidentally without noticing
the DISCONTINUED signs.
