I thought about that, but the problem with "nearest in time" is that, as I
recall, it requires pricedb entries to exist. Perhaps I could make it
default to "nearest in time" whenever entries are detected. I will at least
change the default to "average cost". If you know an easy way to detect
whether there are pricedb entries, let me know. That stuff is completely new
to me.
