Yes, but I'm more than willing to work with you as I don't use gnucash
as much as some of the online financial utilities, but it depends on
goffice, and I already maintain gnumeric because goffice is such a
pain in the ass.

I also feel that gnucash is a worthy package to be supported by Arch
in the official repos, so that's part of the rationale here. I also
feel like I would use it more were it a package I was responsible for
(so there's a subtle selfish reason in here, heh)

Ah good catch, I was not aware of these two deps not being in extra. Silly me.

So guys: adding gnucash to extra would pull in these two deps. Is this
still acceptable?
