As far as the description entry is concerned, currently there is no
difference between a standard two-split transaction and a multi-split
transaction.  This is one reason that nobody has implemented the changes
required for bug #149241.

Yes, you could change the get_desc_entry() function to figure out
which split to obtain the split memo, but then you'd also have to
handle what to do if the user changes that entry!

It's not a two-line change -- there's a bunch of logic changes that
are required to get this functionality.

But yes, all the changes are in the ledger-core directory.  Not all of
them are in split-register-model.c, I don't think.  But I haven't
looked closely.
