Regarding Budgeting: I've been pretty pleased with the state of my
patchset for a couple months now.  The budget system seems stable and
doesn't seem to be missing any essential features.  I'd been holding
off pushing them because they involve more "rearchitecting" than I
think you're comfortable with.  E.g.  Recurrences are intended to
be a much simpler replacement for FreqSpec.

If you'd like, I can email the patchset to -patches.

One TODO is that I haven't looked into what's necessary to make
budgets work with qof-merge stuff.

BTW, my mini-projects at the moment are 1) looking at what's needed to
remove GnomeCanvas from the register.  2) looking at what's needed to
move the execution entry-point from guile to a C main.  But more 1)
than 2).
