Please add the ability to accept/sign contracts for a percentage of current-month's-use, rather than giving no option but, as present, 100%-of-current-month's-use.

This contracting would buffer corps from being locked in to purchasing *more* than their monthly need if production falls.

(E.g. if a corp signs contract in January to mensually buy 80% of monthly consumption, and if the corps' production falls 10% in February, the quantity purchased on contract would now be 89% of that month's use rather than, as is presently the case, the excessive 111%. Especially important since, if production is falling, the corps revenues may well be smaller that month and it can hardly afford to be buying *extra* commodities.)

This will be espeically useful for players who need to leave things automated for a few days and don't want their contracts causing companies to drive themselves into needless debt during their absence.

Should be merely the simple addition of a "percentage" field next to the two "modify contract" buttons on the multi-corps sign-contracts page and multiplying the month's consumption by that value in order to determine the amount for which to set the signed contracts.
