[Kmymoney-devel] Automatic reconciliation feature

I've committed an initial implementation of this feature
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=228492 in SVN (not in 3.98.0). If anyone
would like to give it a try the feature can be enabled in the 'Register'
settings on the 'Data entry' tab using the 'Automatic reconciliation' check
mark. It works in the following way: after closing the reconciliation dialog
(the one in which the statement data is entered) it will look for the
transactions in the reconciliation interval and if it finds a matching set of
transactions (the sum of them matches the cleared balance) it will offer to
clear them. Note that the success of the algorithm depends on the number of
transactions and on the largest difference between the amounts of those
transactions. So if let's say I have 20 transactions with a really big
difference between the amounts (I've tested with a set of amounts containing
amounts from 10000 to 0,01) the algorithm will be slower than with less
transactions. If all transactions (or all but one) inside the reconciliation
period should be cleared the algorithm does not depend on the number of
transactions or on the difference between the amounts. The algorithm runs in
polynomial time in N and 1/c where N - the number of transactions and c is a
number smaller the the accounts precision so if the precision is 0,01 then c
could be 0,009.
Any feedback is welcome. This being a new feature maybe it deserves a few
words in the documentation.
