So, you're thinking of referencing an external FDO vector feature and

I like this idea a lot in concept, but in practice it would be a lot
harder for me to do this than it would to generate a PO for a given

it's a non-traditional system, and takes quite a bit of work to
explain/justify to traditional purchasing departments.
