New Purchase Order Status - "Hold"

Customer sometimes puts Purchase Orders 'On hold' (a number of reasons why), usually for their (manual) back-to-back orders, for which they put the associated Sales Order number in the 'Reference' field.

They currently flag an order as on/off hold by typing (or deleting)
" - Hold"
after the Sales Order No. They have an 'Intranet' page that displays the open orders, and it shows up on there.

I don't think that either the 'approval' or 'EDI' workflow is appropriate for this scenario, so it would be handy if we could have a 'Hold' status added to the list of statuses for a 'normal' (default workflow) purchase order.

Since there's an unused 'Header5', I'm going to use that for now.
