The GnomeCal "Month" view is starting to be like what I want... maybe even
a user-selectable view [eventually].  What also might be nice is a tree
of upcoming transactions or a straight list, but in order of occurance,
with multiples; not just a list of the objects in the scheduled transaction
list... something like:

. March 15th, 2001
  . Lunch w/friend0
  . Gas
  . Power bill
  . Paycheck
. March 19th, 2001
  . Lunch w/friend1
. March 20th, 2001

Evolution I haven't looked at [Outlook is painful enough, so an Outlook
clone doesn't really seem like a good thing]... but I will so this weekend.

Probably another man-week of work [at least]... make that two.

Given my duty cycle WRT gnucash over the last month or two, and my workload
at my Real Job, probably another month or two.  I'm relatively young,
so it's hard to estimate work-times well [especially a spare-time thing
like this]... maybe that number should be higher.

I'm definitely concentrating on getting the major parts working first,
and filling in the details later [for instance, the only frequency
selection notebook pages that actually do anything are Once, Daily,
Weekly, Semi-Monthly and Monthly... the others are just empty...]
