C4::Circulation::ReturnLostItem, as currently implemented, overwrites items.paidfor for the designated item, but some libraries are using this field for nonpublic notes that they would like to keep.
Patch coming momentarily, which will *append* the paid-for note to the existing data.

Bug 8569: Paying for lost item overwrites nonpublic notes.
This patch modifies C4::Circulation::ReturnLostItem to append the Paid-for note
to existing data, rather than overwriting it.

Looks like the status should be signed off
We cannot translate the message put into the paidfor field but anyhow there is no easy way to do that.
Marked as Passed QA
The use case is not very common, but I think it's more a bugfix than an ENH.
