I haven't not started any of the ui. ui is something I have NO 
experience in (told you it'sbeen a while). the scheme seems pretty 
intuitive to me. I've been trying to figure out how the hell to get 
some understanding of the gnc code and where to fit in and what, if any, 
parts of it can be reused for this payroll. Obviously the parts that 
write the transactions, the employee records need to be expanded to 
store payroll data, probably whatever standard parts draw the ui...

I suspect, haven't looked deep enough yet, that the engine can probably 
take just about any data structure and write it to the main file which 
is a cleaner solution, plus themore files, the more likely someone is to 
lose one.
