Thanks, Charles, for the heads up.   I think any hints about improving
the Quicken => gnucash experience is pertinent here (and may be useful
in that area of the user's manual).

My Quicken data is so hosed now after a munged update with OFX that
I'm going to have to spend the rest of my life straightening it out.
Hopefully I can finish before they haul me out.

The beauty of gnucash is that I can at least get to the raw data and
have the possibility of some script manipulation.
