Unfortunately I do not believe that the OFX importer API has been
g-wrapped to allow for a scheme script to automate the process. Another
issue is that the importer has a GUI component to deal with transaction
destination mapping and duplicate detection which cannot be automated.
So, no, I do not think there is any way to script an import (nor do I
think just wrapping the import APIs in g-wrap would help).
