 I had to go and review the patch to see exactly what it was.

Currently in 1.3, you can attach contacts to AR/AP accounts (mandatory
due to payment reversal rules), cash accounts (as a default for
payments), overpayment and discount accounts (for payments).  There
isn't a default income/expense account mapping primarily because
nobody has made a case it to be generally useful.  However, what I
will probably do is place this in addons/ as an officially maintained
enhancement and see what happens at least through the 1.3 branch.

If there is a general use case here, I have no problem merging the
changes right now.  Also between 1.3 and 1.4, I'd like to see a much
larger discussion about the AR/AP transaction workflow.

Best Wishes.
