Hi Chris,

I assume that eguile-gnc.scm is a new file which does not conflict with any 
other .scm files.  If so, I have no problem including it in 2.3.2/2.4.

The balance sheet looks beautiful.  It will be a really nice change to have 
those reports rather than the ugly ones we have now.

Re Wiki page: Go ahead.  is there anything blocking you from doing this?
