No recipient name line in invoices

Excuse the cross posting from gnucash-users I meant to post here.

In company details I have filled in the appropriate boxes including the name of 
the person to receive the invoice.  However when I print the invoice I get the  
"Company Name" instead of the "Name" as the first line of the address.

There is a missing line to get the name. I have included a patch for business-
core.scm for consideration.

This apples in the stable and the SVN versions.  The invoice does include the 
"Company Name" as the first line of the address and perhaps it shouldn't.  
Maybe this should be an option?
