If you mean that the automatic transactions only happen when the user
launches GnuCash, then that's not going to be sufficient.  GnuCash is
also getting support for interaction with the stock quote systems, and
other real-time bits.  These have to happen at particular times, no
just whenever GnuCash is run.
