Thanks for all the input. I searched around a bit about scheduled
transactions as you suggested and I came up with this howto:

In the same guide, the mortgage setup is quite straight-forward, however
there's one more thing:
For pre-defined, re-occurring charges (e.g. for a loan, or charges to
the credit card), split over a period of months or years, the scheduled
transactions module works just fine, but I was wondering if it is
possible to have the transactions entered for all the the time periods
at once (each one in its scheduled time), instead of having them entered
month after month, according to schedule. This way, I would be able to
follow (a) how much I owe right now and (b) how much the total payments
due for all loans, credit cards, etc are going to be for a specific
month in the future (good for budgeting).

Thanks again,
