Thank you Phil. Github isn't logged anywhere apart from web interface,
hence not the best for discussion.
The only hiccup I really want to elucidate is whether equity being part of
Transfer line is needed at all. So please let me know whether it should be
part of the equation at all.
My suggestions for summary lines as follows would encourage users to think
'incoming funds --> outgoing expenses, and invest into savings and pay off
"Inflow from Income" = normally positive
"Outflow to Expenses" = normally positive
"Outflow to Asset&Liability" = normally positive
"Unbudgeted balance" = aiming towards zero
