Yes, but it takes a patch to one c file and one glade file (and then  
another definition in the scm file). It isn't too hard, but seems  
like more work than it's worth. I added another format because I  
needed a different check height than any of the existing ones  
allowed, and I thought I might need the standard height definition, too.

For two check formats, I recommend saving one format as the Custom  
format, and then just edit one of the existing definitions in  
the .scm file and remember which one you edited.
