A firefox-plugin would mean that such an import cannot be run
autonomously at night because it needs a screen and a user.

I agree that it should not be a part of Gnucash as it's way
outside the scope of this program. I can do a lot in jGnucashlib
but nothing of that scale too.

Is anyone actually thinking of implementing this or are we just talking
about the details of a proposal that noone wants to do (yet)?
