RecurringApplicationCharge 2021-10 : a new recurring application charge does not cancel previous

Each shop can have only one recurring charge per app. When a new recurring application charge is activated for a shop that already has one, the existing recurring charge is canceled and replaced by the new charge. The new recurring charge is then activated.

FYI to anyone using RecurringApplicationCharge 2021-10:

When creating a new recurring application charge, the old one is not cancelled.

I just discovered it when testing with 2021-10. I was able to create multiple recurring application charges on the same store with the same app, (test": true) but each one with "status": "active". This is not what the current docs say it should do. So this is warning to anyone using this API.

"current docs say". There is no such thing in Shopify. Almost all are inaccurate or outdated
