Yea... AccountGroups aren't first-class objects.  they aren't stored,
per-se, and they don't have GUIDs or other identifiers.  Indeed,
there's absolutely no way to uniquely specify a top-level

So, this is definitely a quandry; one simple fix might be to add an
xaccGroupGetGUID() which returns the Group->ParentAccount->GUID for
everything but a top-level Group, where it returns Group->Book->GUID.

But I don't know if this would help you at all in your merge process.
