Well, I filed a bug for this.  It's Bug #466773

right and described the situation properly.  I only use this for personal 
finances so I don't really know much about accounting or how something like 
this should be implemented in a program.

I'd love to help, but I have no idea how to write code for something like 
this.  However, on the Development wiki page 
( it mentions that sizable 
donations can be used to fulfill feature requests.  How much are we talking 
about here?  Is there really a process for doing this?  Like I said above, I 
only use this for personal finances, and I don't think I can afford to pay a 
guy to add this feature by myself, but is there a way to get, say, 100 or 
more people to commit five or ten bucks to a specific feature - something 
more binding than a bunch of strangers promising each other money or 
services?  Or would it be better that those smaller donations be thrown in 
the tip jar to cover other expenses?

Too right.  Sometimes I get excited and jump the gun.

Now you can see trouble…before he arrives
