Glad to hear.  I'm a long time gnucash users, and personally know
several others.  We all have a very high opinion of GnuCash.

Wouldn't GDA be a very obvious answer to this? [Of course I'm just a
user and not a developer, but being able to access GnuCash data from
systems like Mono# would be excellent].

Using GDA would make using your GnuCash data from AbiWord or Gnumeric
trivial, since the GDA source would already be defined.  GnuCash would
almost, in practice, become part of the Office Suite.
