I'll play around in glade some and see if I can come up with something
similar to the other registers, etc. that should suit a general purpose

Now a question for the knowledgeable gnc devs:

   The number and types of incomes, deductions, etc. can be quite varied
depending on the users needs.  I was thinking that something similar to
the accounts view and editing features should work.   The primary
difference would be the different types such as:

		--Employment Insurance
		--Pension Plan
		--Federal Tax

Could the existing Accounts editing/creation code be re-used without
difficulty? There will need to be new functions added for linking to the
required formula, setting min/max values, attaching to the appropriate
ledger account, etc..
