I was excited about the recent (almost-) completion of the python bindings. In 
effect, this means it should be possible to write additional gnucash 
functionality in a scripting language other than scheme. What is missing for 
that is some sort of hook mechanism so that at gnucash startup, python code 
can add some hooks into menu items or similar. Once the hooks are in place, 
it should be possible to have reports generated from python code... well, 
maybe. An idea, just in case you like to practice your python and swig 
knowledge :-)
