seen in the next to last field here.  I am away from my notes, 
and I suspect that is a shim session data structure pointer, 
but this is not at all clear in my memory.  Within a given 
shim session, completed orders are held in a non-transient 
memory structure (a 'perm'anent one for the duration of that 
process session), which needs to be marked as 'perm'anent and 
thus not transient temporary or free-able.

This said, I also recall design discussions about habing a 
user defined 'permanent' brand on each order, as might be 
useful for lot accounting purposes.
