Right.  In a standard accounting database app, there's a central transactions 
table that stores an analog of classic double-entry ledger records.  This has 
a lot of value in preventing errors from unbalancing your books.

acc_trans does some of this, but not for all transactions.  I've not been able 
to figure out when it's used and when it's not.
