I think it'll be reasonable for now to merge some infrastructure work in
the transaction-report engine to allow CSV export.

uk-vat-report.scm would be a custom-report, added onto standard-reports or
possibly config-user.scm on request, with caveat that the
accounts-selection is not yet set in stone.

Ultimately it may be an idea to add onto the Tax-Info dialog to tag
accounts, but I don't know how to do that.
