I added tdefunds (TD Waterhouse efunds mutual funds) quotes to 
finance::quote as well as gnucash (which was a simple modification to 
tdwaterhouse module). If you grep the entire gnucash cvs tree for 
"yahoo" or "tdefunds" you will find the relevant files. Careful about 
capitilzation, it may be "Yahoo" or "TDefunds". Do the same for 
finance::quote, just use grep. Or, I find Konqueror file manager's 
"find" feature useful, for case insensitive searching, and other 
features as well of course.
