I thought I would let folks know that I've been working on some changes 
similar to the ones suggested on this page.  As might be expected, it's 
not as simple as it seems and I don't know if the result will be useful 
or not, although it looks somewhat promising.  I thought I'd mention it 
here in case anyone else is thinking about working on this.  If so let 
me know so we can compare notes.  I'm making all these changes under 
control of a new preference and if it is off GnuCash behaves as before. 
When I get something working I'll submit a patch in case anyone is 
interested in it.
