Delayed back-order processing?

I need a cart that can handle customer orders for multiple products where one of the products may be out-of-stock. I need the system to charge and process the in-stock products, but create a back-order for the out-of-stock item. Then, when the item is back instock, that the product is processed (and here’s the kicker), the back-ordered product is THE CHARGED (not at the time of order).

This (and multiple tax rates) are the only 2 required features that I need for this client and I can’t find any cart that has these (and I can’t find much in detail about Magento to answer this question).

Thanks for any help.

Back order functionality is not fully implemented in the most recent version of Magento.

OK… So… Nowadays… Is there a way in Magento to deal with back orders as explained above? In other words, in the back admin, having the ability to show 5 items “ordered” but only 2 invoiced and shipped; with 3 in “back order” status (and invoiced when it will shipped)?

For Nowadays:
you go to admin panel
system->Configuration->Catalog->inventory->Product Stock Options
Where you can manage Backorder properties.
