You may not even need that!  Just enter a date and start entering the
Description just as it was previously.  GnC should populate the rest of
the description for you.  If you hit tab/enter, it should populate all
the splits from the previous transaction.  Feel free to edit any
particular set of splits if the actual values have changed slightly (so
far my wife hasn't spent the same amount at Winco but the splits all
have the same basic accounts that she hits each time).  Just clean up
anything that is amiss and you are done.  No copy/paste.  No Duplicate
activity.  Very little typing (about the same as copy/paste or clicking
on Duplicate) and its all in the register.
