The idea here is a general BookMerge, to allow you to combine two
books together.  This has many purposes:

1) importing an invoice, which is what the original plan was.
2) re-running the "Hierarchy Druid" on an existing data file and
   merging the "new" account hierarchy into your existing account
3) husband and wife marry and want to merge their gnucash data files
   into a single data file.

All of these require generalized merging of data.

I suggest you read the back-thread on this topic.  :)
