I'm assuming we'll be able to specify particular sub-accounts to be used
in this process - by which I mean that I can have a sub-total window
called, say "Division X P&L", and can then designate Income:Division
X:Bribes, Income:Division X:Sales, Expenses:Division X:Cost of Sales,
Expenses:Division X:Wages, (etc) as the accounts to use in that window
(and have them all automagically totalled for me). Inherent in this
selection process would be that it would NOT include Income:Division
Y:Stuff, or Expenses:Division Y:Utilities (etc) in the calculations.

If it can do that, it would be WAY cool. (Sorry, watched "Detroit Rock
City" over the weekend, and its reactivated turns of phrase that I
thought I'd killed decades ago).
