Well, for now, my needs are simple. This may change, but keeping a
double-entry accounting system seems overkill for my very limited
budget as a student. Your setup is great, I played with it a while,
and I think I will test and adopt/extend it to my needs.

Well, ledger is still installed. 
Some day, I will have a closer look at this. But for now, I have
other things to do ...

Thank you *very* much for this basic setup!

P.S.: btw.: It seems that cc is widely used on this mailinglist.
            So I use it even if I know the person is subscribed.
            Is this the preferred way? Every list has its own conventions :(
