One of the frustrations that I and others have had on the invoice
screen is that we'd generally like to customize the description.

So we put "consulting" in as the part, and we get the value, then we
change the description to suit.  One of the effects of this is this is
that if we are "fast enough" to have entered "consulting" on the part
number, and we don't hit "update" first, then we don't find the part,
since the description fails to match.  (This is 1.2 experience)

So, if we are refactoring, I would love after it is done, to be able to
mark "parts" (services) as matching only on the part-number, or
description (or both).
