eguile reports again

Hello folks

Firstly, I've added a new version of eguile-gnc.scm itself to bug
574582.  The only change is improved error reporting.  eguile-gnc has
been stable and reliable for me.  Could it be included in 2.4, even if
eguile-based reports aren't ready yet?  That way, it will be in place
for people to start creating eguile-based reports.

Secondly, I've created an eguile version of a balance sheet report.  The
layout is more to my taste than the standard one (I realise that there
are many ways to lay out a balance sheet.)  The report includes a way of
pre-processing a list of accounts into a structure that can be easily
dealt with by the eguile template, so this could be adapted for other
accounts-based reports.  balsheet-eg.scm is attached to bug 574582, and
so is a sample of its output.

Thirdly, can we set up a page on the wiki for discussion / creation /
development / sharing / documentation of eguile reports?  Should that be
part of the existing 'Custom Reports' page, or somewhere else?
