Hi Nico,

I have a similar problem with Australian GST. What you have asked for 
has been raised on the list quite a few times over the years and I don't 
think you are going to get what you want. The usual suggestion is to use 
the invoicing/payments system, which really isn't a solution because it 
just takes too much time. Would work for a hobbiest but not for anyone 
whos time is money.

What I am going to do is write a small script to do the splits in the 
.qif file before I import it and get around the problem that way. I can 
auto import 100 transactions at work in the time it takes to manually 
enter and split 5 using gnucash at present, and I would like to even 
that up.
