Did you find that MIT scheme doc? its pretty good. Also, the hardest 
part I've found is tearing into the gnc code and finding what the gnc 
calls actually do.

A quick look at aging.scm suggest that lines 232 - 238 or so might help. 
there's specific reference to listing "0" companies. basically, it looks 
at the bill and if its closed, then it skips it. if its not closed then 
it calls "do-update" which is the function that does the work (line 
179-). Try just "do-update"ing all values instead of not(is-paid?) ones...
