Feature requests

AN ABBREVIATION/REFERENCE KEY PER CATEGORY AND CATEGORY TREE. In ecommerce package, each bulk upload of associating categories with products requires working with the databases' index for 3 columns, which is not consistent accross sites. This gets laborious to work with after a while. Allowing categories to optionally explicitly define unique references would help with bulk uploading products, building online catalogs etc. and integrating with the [en:ref-unspsc]] package, which is/has a standardized referencing system. (This request from OpenACS.org Bug 1130)

CATEGORY ACTIVE/INACTIVE. Ecommerce needs to have categories include an attribute for each category that identifies if a category is active (in use) or not. That way, large category reference systems, such as http://www.unspsc.org/ can be imported without concern about overloading the shopping basket with categories that contain no products. (This request from OpenACS.org Bug 1130).

CATEGORY LIST/TREE MAP. Each category tree needs to have a list equivalent for speedy referencing, for cases when there might be many thousands of items in a category tree. (This request from OpenACS.org Bug 1130).
