That is good news, I can have both information sent to nova really easy. I
just need to add a field into the token, or more than one if needed. RIght
now I send Ids, it could names just as easily and we can add a new field so
we can have both information sent. I'm not sure which is the best option
for us but i would think that sending both for now would keep the
compatibility and we could still use the names for display porpuse
