Excuse me to break in here, AFAIK the tranditional and accountig method to 
keep different subsequent datasets coherent is to define corresponding and 
equal closing and opening transactions on the "borders" of of each period.
Maybe this could help here, too. This "shifting" or sorting of actual 
transaktions into a different preriod is a own book-keeping sub-task in the 
german accounting standards, and involves making assumptions i.e of valueing 
parts of lots etc.

This is also among the periodizing information I gathered on the wiki. There 
are also some more feedback from the lists on the wiki.
