Actually, it will also require changes to AR.pm, AP.pm, IS.pm, IR.pm and
CA.pm and probably others as well as GL.pm.


Anywhere there is a "SELECT ... FROM (ar|ap) ..." the select will need
to be changed to "SELECT ... FROM (ar|ap) JOIN gl ...".

Anywhere there is an "INSERT INTO (ar|ap) ..." there will need to be a
matching "INSERT INTO gl ..." added.

Anywhere there is an "UPDATE (ar|ap) ..." the UPDATE will need to to be
split into two one for (ar|ap) and one for gl.

Anywhere there is a "SELECT ... FROM gl ..." a "WHERE ledger = 'gl' will
need to be added unless you want all transactions to be editable as GL

Also either my script needs to be altered to have gl.ledger default to
'gl' and gl.module default to 'gl' or you'll have to change all the
INSERT/UPDATE gl statements too.

I suppose you could hide these behind views with triggers/views but that
seems kind of hackish... Wouldn't it be better to fix the PERL code?
