Default Re: 3.1.2 API Changes Amount Behavior

I'm using the same modified sample code (I haven't updated it in months) and this behavior changed when we upgraded our server to 3.1.2.

The "amount" field was always used to be a "Grand total" that includes taxes and etc, and it was only related to recurring charge requests. For initial payment requests "totalCost" field is used, and it was for "Grand total" as well.

The only thing that is changed is that previously if both "amount" and cart's "totalCost" is specified in recurring charge request, then the "totalCost" is used, but now in 3.1.2 the "amount" value will override it.
