Ledger rocks as a double entry accounting tool. I've been using it for
some basic accounting, expense reports, and more with latex & perl. I
even wrote a CSV importer (CSV2Ledger) that provides much of the
functionality I felt was missing from importers in other packages (ie:

On the flip side, Ledger is exactly that, a double entry accounting
tool. Not more, or less. I'm faced with needing the ability to
integrate it into some business workflows (ie: expense reporting,
invoicing cycles, tax reporting, etc) which I'll have to write all of
the logic myself. I can use Ledger for the data, but I have to code
the workflows I require.

I've been struggling with this for several months, because I want to
avoid solutions like Quickbooks that provide a workflow coupled to an
accounting backend with proprietary formats in that other OS. I'm
certainly open to suggestions.
