That may be. I'm going based on what I've been seeing on the GnuCash
mail lists. Maybe I've missed some posts. It would be interesting to
see what kind of system specs and file sizes we're talking about

multi-year files? Would this be solved by the introduction of
accounting periods so that for instance, each year was in a separate
file? Just curious.
