Hello Allan,
we do have a lot, but it's always better when we can take an early
look, so we can advice on the right direction, or think of better
alternatives together.
I was looking into adding the tar you sent to the repository. Just one
minor nitpick before doing it. Can you remove the version number from
the names? It's more flexible that way (and you don't end up with the
whole "kmymoney2" saga).
Send the new tar directly to me and I'll add it to contrib.

Sorry for the delay to answer. It's been fairly crazy this last week,
both in KMM and in RL.
