Honestly I think it would suffice for a large number of users, so, no
I don't think that would suck. Besides, it's just a default.

month" in it. It's not rocket science, and frankly if you read the
thread this is all that was being requested: emailing invoices to

Then we're clearly talking about different things. Yes, this leaves
you cold. Eit. Sorry. This feature isn't for you.
Emailing invoices is a simple problem.. Emailing reports in general
is a HARD problem. A number of people have asked for the simple
problem to be solved. So, let's solve it (especially since it really

If not, that's fine with me, too.
