One of the long-term goals... However it will be c++ code by then. We'd 
love some more help getting the conversion done btw.

More on topic though:
Ngewi, you write that you intend to generate the transactions when an SX 
is due. Knowing that gnucash will also create these transactions, 
independently from GoA when they are due, won't this cause duplicate 
entries when importing back from GoA to gnucash on the desktop ?
