this is playing pretty fast and loose with tickets. it would allow a
ticket issued on collection B to apply to an item republished from
collection A. not what we want.
i'd think that if a user is copying an item out of a subscribed
collection, you'd just store that collection's ticket along with the
new relationship between the item and the collection it's copied into.
then you could send that specific ticket along with that item's
recordset when publishing the destination collection.
