The source is available as of now.
It's completly self-contained, and therefore should compile on 2.2.9 and 

Known limitations/bugs:
 - no documentation
 - only perl compat. regexp support; requires >=glib-2.18 (no real csv parser)
 - currently only the first regexp works correctly
 - line oriented input format (no support for CR inside memo fields, ...)
 - multiline invoices supported, but completely untested
 - column reordering supported by modifying regexp (gui to be done)
 - expects input file to be in current locale
