The functions are copies of the gnumeric ones, so the gnumeric docs are
sufficient; their source is actually relatively readable ... locate
fin.scm in the package.   I've a low-prio todo item to add a SX/loan
section to the gnucash-docs, where these 3 functions could be described.
There's no reason someone else (*nudge*nudge* *hint*hint* :) couldn't
write that documentation.

[If/when we get an expression editor, I'd hope it has a way to display
the signature of the function as it's being edited.]

...jsled - `a=jsled;; echo ${a}@${b}`
