The executables can be removed, sure.

I'd prefer to continue having the code files itself in the subdirectory 
"calculation". The "calculation" code is a standalone unit  for those 
financial calculations and not dependent on glib or any other gnucash parts. 
Moving it plain into app-utils would loose the information that those 4-5 
source files make up a unit of its own. Only within gnucash this unit 
thematically belongs into app-utils, which is why I've moved it there.
