It already "learns" where transactions are assigned. The only problem is that
currently, it only uses what it has learned on the next import. Derek
already filed a RFE on this. I also had to import nearly a year worth of
transactions recently and ran into this annoying limitation, so you can hope
for this feature somewhere in the 1.8 series.
However, I am not touching this before 1.8 is released (we are in feature
freeze), and it will be fairly delicate to implement properly.
