[Idea][Wallet]Wallet Remarks Everywhere

Here's an idea that's been on my mind for a while. Basically, I would like the ability to put a remark in everything that can potentially cause a wallet entry, like what can be done with wallet transfers right now.

The reason I would like this is so that I can more easily keep track of money and materials related to multiple industrial projects on multiple characters. Currently I have to guess or keep a cumbersome manual administration on the amounts of money spent on things like invention and manufacturing fees, purchases through market orders and sales, especially if I'm selling from or buying for two batches of the same item. Being able to tag the orders as belonging to one project or another would vastly simplify this and might even convince some enterprising soul to take a crack at a hypothetical EVE-ERP.

On a somewhat technical note, doing this should lead to the same market transaction having two different remarks, one for buyer and one for the seller.

I literally moments ago had the same thought with regards to Player Trades. You can put a reason in for Player Donations, but not for trades, where it makes a lot of sense if you just borrow ships and want to clarify that in the logs.

My ridicule, heavy criticism and general pale outlook about your or CCP's ideas is nothing but an encouragement to prove me wrong. Give it a try.

After some thinking, I would imagine that any corp or alliance buyer would also be overjoyed with this feature. It makes it much easier to track how much isk is being spent on whatever order is being bought for. Multibuys and buy imports are good and all but having a remark option would make it possible to have the computer check that you did buy what was in the order and how much isk to bill in the contract.

would also be nice if market transactions showed what the transaction was for
