Cool, this sounds like the dbi backend being ready for testing? How is
the performance in comparison to the xml backend?

Concerning the reporting system there is something I miss: Older GC
versions allowed to click on account names to go from an item to a
greater level of details (drill down) which I found very useful
sometimes. I know it had to be removed for technical reasons, but still
it would be nice if this could be considered during a rewrite.
