Although you may want IC to be smart about inventory on the rest of your
items. There are probably many other, more robust ways of doing this however
what comes to mind is editing the portion in log_transaction that loops
through and decrements inventory. It's near the bottom IIRC. Just add a
condition to skip the decrement on your downloads. Then just set your
downloads to 999, or - the maximum you want to allow being purchased - 1?
Anyways, I am sure there are better ways, and I hate suggesting hacking
log_transaciton, but hey, who doesn't.
