I don't know how different they are.  I'd rather see the other package
updated indeed.  Feel free to mail the maintainer of grisbi (that's
the other package) and tell him he should adapt to the new library.  I
don't know anything about grisbi.

gnucash-1.8.10 requires the new libofx or I would have waited until
after sarge anyway.  Many users have clamored for gnucash-1.8.10 to be
in sarge.
