Dmitry was working on something like that; I couldn't wait and wrote
one in C.  His is in perl. Handles inventory, invoice printing (one at a
time on demand), special prices and a few other minor things.  Probably
could use to be cleaned up some tho.  This one runs with Apache, but one
day I'll probably rewrite it to use my micro-webserver so a full web
server wouldn't be a requirement.
