Hmm. 'good' and 'bank' that close together in a sentence? Hard to  
imagine. I know that Wachovia at least has their name on the web  
address of the ofx server, but then they charge their own customers  
$2 if they use another bank's atm. Yech.

There are some credit unions that are big enough to have ofx  
capability, and membership these days sometimes only requires an  
extremely loose affiliation to the original founding organization.

Unfortunately, I don't think any financial institution will agree  
that you can use a non-sanctioned program to access your own bank  
data, you end up having to test them yourself.

Since I have yet to connect to a savings or checking account via  
gnucash, I cannot authoritatively tell you who should get your business.
