I'm aware of that.  I believe Ivan Kohler was aware of it too when he 
provided a way of passing additional parameters to the 
Business::OnlinePayment constructor.

I don't see why you'd have to hack on the module code if you already 
have a way of passing extra parameters.  Adding a second way of doing it 
just bloats the code.

Note that the existing code specifically greps some keys out of the $opt
