[GNC] apply a factor to profit/loss report

My tax table suggestion was based on Derek's suggestion to use separate accounts for the main amount and your "coefficients." If your kayak transactions were split between the main account and the coefficient account, you could aggregate them where necessary, and separate them elsewhere. 

But really, the best solution is to munge the data in a spreadsheet. It can't be more work than trying to drag this feature out of gnucash. A little bit of creative formula building might allow you to copy the gnucash report into one tab, have the coefficients in a second tab, and use lookups in a third tab to generate the final report. I've used this approach to get stock prices for my portfolio using Google sheets.

I don't know, if I have. I have some experience with Common Lisp and
Emacs Lisp. And I guess, that I should
- copy the income-statement.scm to a new file
- make some changes, so that there won't be any conflicts with the
  original file (namespace, identifiers and such)
- multiply the amounts in this new file with an attribute of the account
  (for example "code")

Probably not too hard, but I don't have enough time for that. Where
could I offer a bounty for this feature please?

I've tried, but it seems that the profit-loss-report does not use such


P.S.: I've just realized, that I already asked this question about
2 years ago. I've totally forgotten that. Please excuse me for this
