Editing the source is not user customization :)

I was able to to at least add the toy report this way, thanks.  I
copied hello-world.scm to my .gnucash directory, edited some strings,
and commented out the define-module statement. 

  (display "start loading config.user")
  (load "my-hello-world.scm")
  (display "end loading config.user")
