-Under the name 'Taler merchant' there are two main objectives: one is to
-implement a common helper (called 'backend') for all the existing merchants
-willing to integrate Taler in their existing online shops, whereas the other
-objective is implementing some demonstrator shops which use that backend.
-This component allows merchants to receive payments without invading the
-customers' privacy. Of course, this applies mostly for digital goods, as the
-merchant does not need to know the customer's physical address.
-Since the main component's part is the backend, and it is supposed to work with
-preexisting shops, a massive backend's testing with existing shop portals 
-be accomplished.
