Thanks Josh! That doc and some help from Mark and Jon on IRC got me
going. Changing my etc/after.cfg from

CommonAdjust   :sale_price, ;:price, ;$, ==:options


CommonAdjust   sku_notes:added_charge, :sale_price, ...

changes the price of the sku in question as expected and I can live with
that solution.

What I'd prefer however is a way to add the value of
sku_notes.added_charge to the price instead of just replacing the price.
If anyone has a thought on that I'd love to hear it!
