Is this the 1.5.x branch ?

Oh, okay.  Then I probably can't do much with it, since I know neither guile, 
scheme, or anything about GUI development :)

Oh, okay, so this stuff is completely re-designed for the 1.5.x branch?
I assume that means the gnucash.xac file will be deprecated once 1.5 reaches a
