[Koha] Handling for items lost in transit

Hi all,

I'm seeking some thoughts regarding 'Bug 21732 - If an item is marked as
lost, any outstanding transfers should be cancelled

Currently, there is no thought given to transfers when an item is marked as
lost, an as such you may have lost items in the transfers queue.  This bug
aims to solve this by triggering a cancellation of the transfer at the
point an item is marked as lost.

We have a few questions:

1) Should this be treated as an enhancement or a bug (If it's an
enhancement then we would enable/disable it's functionality based upon a
system preference. If it's a bug (as I advocate), then it would be always
enabled and no system preference would be added)
2) If the items is 'in transit' where should the items holding library be
set to when it is marked as lost (the from or to library).
3) If we consider this a bug, should we add handling for cleaning up the
transfers table at upgrade time for any lost items.

Many thanks for your help,
