It is certainly my intention to avoid making a mess of the interface. I
suspect even if I tried, Dave or Linas or the other developers would
squash my attempt is rather short order anyway... :-).

Personally I would like it to be a module. My machine doesn't have much
memory or processor power and I am concerned to keep it usable for my
What actually eventuates (if anything) depends on the interfaces
available and the ability to do the stuff I need within them.

If people say "No, not yet. Gnucash isn't ready for that yet", then I'll
