Yes, by business ledger I mean the "invoice" dialogs (customer
invoice, vendor bill, employee expense voucher).

Weird.. it was working for me a week ago; I haven't tried it
today now that I'm back in town.

Thanks.  It would all depend on whether you kept the same
register-core apis.  If so, then it should just work.  If not, then it
wont.  The business ledger is effectively a replacement of the
ledger-core directory under src/register that uses GncInvoice instead
of Account and GncEntry instead of Transaction.
