New Unit Element and Attributes
The latest ROES Client, available for use by request, supports unit pricing, where multiple templates can be assigned the same tiered pricing scheme and allow volume discounts to apply to all products set with a specific unitu_id value.  The Unit element should be added inside a catalog, at the same level as Order Options and Image Options (not inside a template group).  The attributes price, unitu_id and u_id should be present on Unit, with tiertype as an option and set to graded.  On the templates, set attributes unitquantity and unitu_id.  The unitu_id should match the unitu_id for the specific Unit element this template should get pricing from, and the unitquantity should be set to at least 1.  If offering half-units, set the ir value to 1 and the full units to 2, and adjust the price value on the Unit element to be for half-units, which will be doubled for each full unit.
