I still believe that you should NOT be copying customers (or vendors,
or employees) across book closings, or if you do it should be an exact
copy, not a 'gemini' copy.  Similarly with the billterms and taxtables
you dont need to copy them because the parent/child code is already
doing the historical "copy and save" for you.
