You can re-send the same invoice. You select the number and print it
out again. Thats a long time to receive money. Hopefully they are
yearly. You can set the extend for the account up high or use
the limit field to give them a permanent extension.

The main issue with balance forward is how do you determine when to
authenticate the user? With expiration its easy. With balance forward
do you let someone in who owes you $4, $10, or $25?

There are also some issues and outstanding bills (since BF doesn't
apply payments to specific invoices) and a user having the ability
to always have a "owe" just under what your allowable is.

I'd be more than interested in people's comments on this.
