I got thundering silence, actually... Chris helped me come up with some
good queries to get the numbers I needed that day...

Yes, I'm a little concerned that the core team and community seems
awfully small. But I see every indication of top-caliber people here, so
that's sure to change.

You know, I moved it over with pg_dumpall, and edited the dump file a
bit because it had to share with other Postgres users/dbs. I haven't
used the built-in SL backup feature for ages--figured I had the files
and raw database.

SQL-Ledger itself looks like I updated to 2.6.23 before switching over.
