A custom string-split would have been necessary for supporting Guile 1.4 and
below. If GnuCash will never support those versions again, then I think we
can just drop it. Shall I do that? At the very least, I could move it out of
main.scm and into the new file of string procedures. I was thinking of
calling it src/scm/string.scm.
