And so does AqBanking ;-)

Actually the German HBCI protocol uses this format to report transaction 
statements, so it is a must-have. This importer is available to the public 
via AqBankings import/export API, but so far it is not used by Gnucash.

Connecting GnuCash to AqBanking would at least benefit us in Europe (and 
especially in DE), since that would add some of our formats to GnuCash (like 
However, the other formats supported by AqBanking (ofx, csv, later:qif) are 
already supported by GnuCash (and most other existing applications), so it 
would most likely bring no additional features to your continent ;-)

BTW: Where do you get the GTK1(!) apdicocs ? It is hard to find (most 
ressources point to GTK2 nowadays...).
