Yep, QuickBooks is about the only reason I boot Micros~1 Windows now.
Unfortunately, I only do so every few months, so I haven't had much
incentive to script up what little I use of it. At least Quicken
has a somewhat reasonable export format.
The main reason I haven't done anything on these fronts is that I've
been following Thoreau's advice:

> toes, and lump the rest. Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity! I say, let
> your affairs be as two or threee, and not a hundred or a thousand;
> instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your
> thumb nail.
