Right. This is David Fetter's idea, actually .... one he implemented for a
game company. It consisted of the simple idea of a method/function map,
gl.modify = modify_gl(account1, account2, amount, is_debit)
This has the advantage of both providing some ORM and being "self-documenting"
in a single package. Since OO programming is not a big concern for us, we
wouldn't adopt David's specific approach, but I can certainly see having a
centralized function map.
