Here we added a link on the ticket Disply tab when it's closed to
Invoice it. When clicking, we do an XMLRPC request to our billing
system, to get the list of contracts/prices (different kind for
tifferent kind of ticket) for this customer (each queue correspond to a
customer). So the user choose the contract, enter a short description of
the problem (the first transaction is copied to help him), then submit.
The billing is then done by XMLRPC and the contract is writen in a
customfield 'contract' and a customfield "billing" is filed with "ok"
(if this ticket don't need to be billed, users can change this
customfield to 'not needed'). SO based on those customfields, the ling
"Invoice" don't appear anymore, the ticket is closed and invoiced.

It's far from perfect (I would like to refactor this and refactor ou
billing app ... when time free :(), but it works.
