Alright, I'll stick to the CSV stuff. The one thing I'm still
wondering about though is the fact that the OFX importer does appear
to create splits to the Imbalance account, without help from the user;
I'm not sure if this is something particular to the OFX file I'm
testing with, but I don't think it is. Is it possible for me to do
something within my importer code (e.g. whatever it's doing) to at
least get Imbalance splits?
