The Set Item as Missing Pieces is such a cool feature - when there isn't a
transit. We can go back to handling missing pieces the way we did with our
previous ILS. Find the last patron to circ the item and check it out to
him. Then we won't have to worry about transits.

Thank you for letting me think out loud.
