there were so many interconnected pieces that I really didn't want to touch

My solution is kind of clunky, but it works I suppose. I chose to:

1. Remove all direct charges on the invoice
2. Detach all titles from the invoice
3. Left the vendor invoice ID, but prefixed it with DELETE (you could also

4. Tacked onto the end of the invoice note "Invoice invalid per vendor;
entries deleted by PINES." I *did* leave the autogenerated "Invoice
generated by edi message 12345" because I wanted to keep evidence that it
came in via EDI and searchable by its associated EDI message. This step may
be overkill, especially for dupes, but just saying that's what I did
because why not.
5. Closed the invoice so they wouldn't show up on open invoice searches.

Far less elegant than actually being able to delete them, but it does the
