Um, not sure what you mean by "proprietary"?   Nothing in GnuCash
is proprietary.  I was just asking for help testing the code that
will be 2.0.5 Really Soon Now.

As for "starting too slowly", did you see the FAQ:

As for "not always properly handling transaction splits involving
multiple currencies", yes, we know there are a bunch of bugs there.
The register is a piece of spaghetti, and there are multiple code
paths that all behave differently based on how you move around
the register.   Hitting tab behaves differently than hitting return,
and both behave differently than using the mouse button to jump around!

As for "a few other bugs", well, mention them, please!  Or at
least make sure they are filed in bugzilla!  If we don't know about
them then we can't fix them.
