The current database schema doesn't seem to handle things this way (it
is somewhat braindead in how payments are tracked at the moment).

I see two options at this point (outside of undoing the work):
1)  You could help us get to where payments are GL entries (where we
want to be for 1.4)

What would be needed here would be redoing the outstanding reports and
transactions reports (in AA.pm), and providing a linking table.

2)  We could come up with a way to automatically take the data you
have, reverse it, and add proper payments.

Without knowing how this came in, I can't comment, but given that you
are trying to associate everything this shouldn't be out of the
