I would never make my accounting system accessible from the Net.  I would
like it to be accessible on the LAN, though, and https seems like a good
way to do that.

I would not be interested in a non-free package.

I have a toy system I spent some time on after I dropped out of the Gnucash
project.  It uses Python and Postgresql and illustrates some ideas I was

probably suffered bit-rot.
