Stock software, trendlines

Let me start with a caveat that this is probably a bad idea... but this
is what I did:
I have a backend process that processes the gnucash xml file. It makes
a summary of it. This summary is readable by cacti. Cacti then creates
trend graphs of a multitude of things (stock prices is part of it, but I
have probably 70 graphs of various things.)
The plus side is you get a history going back as far as you want. I
have mine for 10 years. (I've been doing this a while.) The
granularity becomes more and more coarse as you go back.
The bad side: the xml file will be changing and this will break. Soon.
