sweet. thanks! I knew there had to be an existing data structure that
would handle it better than my little list, but it worked anyway, so I
stuck with it for the moment. Better to recurse through a little list
than a whole book of accounts, I figured. 

So thanks, I'll have to read up the scheme hash-tables.
