Finance::Quote 1.0 should be fully backwards compatible with previous
releases, although it is strongly recommended that the new OO-style
is used (it's cleaner and easier).

Am I correct in assuming that gnc-prices would no longer be a separate
executable but rather another function that can be called, or does
GnuCash have the needed framework to allow multiple processes access
its data at once?

If there is anything I can help with from my end, then please let me
know.  My knowledge of scheme is very limited, so I don't know how
well it talks to perl.  I'm happy to work on a C interface to
F::Q if it helps, as it's something I intend to do sooner or later
