I am wondering how much work it would be to implement a "tag/label/ 
group" feature that I have seen on other applications such as Mint,  
Quicken, GMail etc. The idea has been around for a while and the  
pipework may already be in place within GnuCash.

Essentially the feature would allow the user to assign one or more  
"tags/labels/groups" to a transaction and/or split. This feature would  
be useful for searching and generating reports. For example a  
transaction could be labelled as "Tax" or "Reimbursement" or both.  
Then if you wanted to see which transactions are involved in taxes,  
make a report showing transactions with the "tax" label.

The feature would affect many areas of gnucash, so I think  
implementing it would be pretty major.

Also, I am offering some of my time to the gnucash team. What areas  
could I help the most? I can program and I update documentation.
