OpenOffice would jump to the scope of the last change, its Undos are global
within the workbook/file. As does Gnumeric.

I think Gnucash accounts are different from Gnumeric workbooks because with
workbooks all the work is done in the workbook. If you were to create a
chart from a spreadsheet that chart is usually part of the workbook that it
is created from, while a report is usually not contained within the
associated accounts. One could argue that a set of Gnucash books is
equivalent to a work book, I wouldn't I see them as more akin to separate
files. I say this because the typical spreadsheet deals with one problem,
while Gnucash is broader.
