Suggestion : save reconcile reports (was: Help .... anyone ....)

I once started an financing program by myself (which has never been
finished), but it had the following, VERY good feature.
Probably it can make it in 1.8 or 2.0:
Every transaction does not only store the status "reconciled" or not, but in
which reconcile session it has been reconciled (automatically numbered from
1 to ....) (so, for exapmle "26" instead of "X".)
In another table, the reconcile information is stored:
Reconcie Session | Date | Amount(US$)
You then can always create a report that compares the calculated reconcile
amounts to the stored ones:
Calclulated := Amound X-1 stored in Reconcile table + all amounts that have
the reconcile number "X".
In general, all values now should be "0". Now, if you accoidently deleted a
transaction, you can see in which reconlilation it has been (it doesn't show
"0" then) , an just check these 5 to 20 treansaction, which will take only
This makes things EXTREMELY easier, if you use gnucash over several years an
suddenly the reconcile amount isn't correct anymore, and this error probably
occured in a transaction years ago ...
Someone here willing to implement that? :)
If so, you can contat me on talkling aboout the concept (althgoug I'm not
used to scheme at all ... or in what language is the code at the moment?)
