Wonderful!

I still think Erik's suggestion long ago that there should just be an
Amazon bot that automatically approves & logs book orders from long-time
editors, was a great one.  There might still be a need for these
higher-overhead programs (possibly e.g. for people who want more privacy
about their request?) but this would be a lovely service in many regions.
