Patches always welcome.

However I would suggest that it would just be easier to have your receipts
scanned into a directory hierarchy that matches your accounts and then
order your receipts by date.  I honestly don't think GnuCash should have a
scanner built-in -- xsane is pretty large, and I'm fairly sure does not
have a good way to integrate.
