A thought - there's no reason to hard code the default accounts, if it makes 
the report more useful to others.

It isn't hard (from a user perspective) to do a 1-time set up of accounts, 
then save as a customised set of options for next time around.

Of course, I don't know if that makes it harder for you as author - more 
dialogs & options, I suppose?
