Scheduled Transactions as Unscheduled Templates

Hi again,

I gave it another look now, and in fact, following on my previous 
suggestion, there is already a "None" frequency. In 
gnome/glade/, freq_combobox/items. Choosing this, 
currently gives a warning, which could be replaced by a message on how 
to recall it.

However, somehow I think you were looking for something else for your 
scripting work? What did you have in mind?
