all i would like to see is a basic invoice email feature like peachtree and
quickbooks has, both of those programs have a canned message such as here is
invoice #10100 for the amount of blah please pay this inoice within 30 days.
the only things that need to be customizable are the invoice #, the total
price and the days payable which should be options in gnucash anyway.
