Actually I want to be able to make it so that persons can also be
customers/vendors.  This means moving some things from mapping against
company and person to mapping against entity.  So some refactoring
needs to take place but I am not sure I want to see entity and company
get fully merged since we need some sort of stub to hang connections
on between these.

Also the sorts of mappings our database schema allows goes *way*
beyond what we are currently using.  Part of the reason here is to
encourage third party development on CRM areas.
