eguile-based reports -- progress

Hello folks

I have put an new improved version of the 'Tax Invoice' eguile-based 
report on the bugzilla page at

The new version has been tidied up considerably.  It now looks for the 
template part of the report in the user's .gnucash directory or in the 
gnucash/report directory.  I've tested this on Ubuntu Linux and Windows 
Vista only, so I would be very grateful if someone could test it on 
other operating systems.

It also uses the pixmap option routine to allow the user to choose a 
logo properly.

For tax table columns, it still relies on bug fix 573645 which became 
part of trunk on 29 April and should be part of 2.3.0.  Invoices that 
don't reference tax tables are fine without that fix.

It works fine with 2.2.9, but has some enhancements when used with the 
Webkit branch -- i.e. the use of CSS styling, which it makes it look 
much nicer, and the user can choose font face and size.  (The tax table 
fix isn't in the webkit branch yet though.)

I hope it proves useful eventually.  I've also been working on an 
eguile-based balance sheet report -- getting the columns to line up 
nicely is tricky...
