[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Adding patron info to checkout receipts - quick poll

I agree with the expire date and would like if nothing else to have first name option.  Would be nice for the parent with 5 kids and receipts for all.

+1 on the expire_date - a lot of our libraries were using that in the xul client. (Open ticket http://git.evergreen-ils.org/?p=evergreen/pines.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/rel_3_0_2_library_info_links )

(My hope is that no library uses the whole prefix, first, middle, last, suffix anywhere, but prefix + last, just first, or first +middle initial might be useful)

Here's what I'm planning to add to a patron object in checkout receipts:

expire_date (can be used with ng-show to give a little reminder that your account will expire soon)
has_email (a boolean for use with ng-show; "Have you signed up for our newsletters?" or "Have an email? Add it to your account to get notifications about your holds!" etc.)
has_phone (same)

I'm duplicating the patron_money information because there's no need for a separate patron and patron_money objects. In the interest of not breaking existing templates the patron_money object would still be in place; just not mentioned anywhere. I considered usrname but couldn't see a use case.

Are there any strong opinions about adding more fields or removing some of these? I figure it's better to knock this out all at once rather than poking at it repeatedly with tiny changes.
