I'll chime in here too, and say that it doesn't interest me at all.
Personally, one of my reasons for using GC is to check that my bank(s) aren't
making mistakes and as such, _all_ txns are manually entered and
compared/reconciled with statements (paper or online) later.
Since I don't really trust the bank not to make a mistake, I don't rely on
their information, until it agrees with what I know.
