What you want, like me and several other people, is for for RT to
understand inherently about "Customers", I suspect.  You can use groups
for that, though you have to be more than usually careful about
rights (you can't assign much of anything at all to "privileged" users,
if you have groups that need to be effectively invisible to one
another -- you have to set up a separate group for your "internal"
people and give the rights to that instead).

I've been thinking that a bit more reporting flexibility builtin might
be nice; the three things *I* need are single-level break and subtotal,
grand total (mostly for time worked) and the ability to report on
*transactions* rather than tickets.

Alas, my perl hacking isn't up to the task...
