I'm looking for two (or more) semi-uncommon parts, and I'd of course
like to lump them together to meet the minimum-buy threshold and save on shipping.

Is there way to take a shopping list of parts + quantities, and get the system
to do the searching and report back with "the cheapest way to fulfill this order
is to buy A, B, C from seller 1, and D, E from seller 2"?

Or is this some horrible https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knapsack_problem that
can't be easily done?
