I don't think I agree; allowing per-account preferences for balance
sign-display seems like a recipe for confusion.  What is the problem
that it's solving?  If there are a class of accounts that people want
to see with the opposite sign, I think that should be discussed, but
it seems to me that if an account has the "wrong" sign it's probably
symptomatic of a systematic problem in the way one is using the
program (i.e. putting negative numbers for check amounts).
