Overriding Power


Hello,

I am working on a package that deals with non-communative multiplication 
and I have run into a problem with the Power function. As we know 
Power[a b,n] (where n is an integer) automatically gets converted to 
Power[a,n] Power[b,n]. However, with non-communative multiplication (I 
have removed the Orderless attribute from Times to make it 
non-communative) this isn't valid. Is there any way I can stop 
Mathematica from automatically doing this conversion?
