Well, G-Wrap 1.3 has no upstream anymore, and its functionality is
replicated in G-Wrap 1.9 - you know, I didn't add the compatibility
layer for the fun of it.

Does upstream actually say that? I've been talking with Derek Atkins
(warlord) on IRC, and from what I gathered, they are trying to use
G-Wrap 1.9, and mostly suceeding modulo a few buglets, all of which
should be fixed in the Debian packaging.

Of course GnuCash is your package, and you are free to maintain it as
you like; I was merely suggesting that switching to G-Wrap 1.9 should
be a viable option.
