RetroCosting costs back-dated element entries that have already been costed through Retropay elements.

2. Retropay is run, creating retro entry for 'Element A Retro'
3. Payroll processes are run
4. Costing is run, and creates costing entries for 'Element A Retro'
5. RetroCosting process is run and creates costing entries for 'Element A' that was created in Step 1. Since 'Element A Retro' was already costed, you now have duplicate costing for the same element entry.
