Do you plan to use any script language for report generation or how
flexibility can be achieved?

Right now the most interesting and actual report for is "Income and Expenses
this month". As I mentioned before in the IRC-channel I can't adjust the depth
of category tree to be displayed: there only two ways: "top-level" and
"everything". "Top-level" is really silent and doesn't provide me with the
full information. As long as my category tree is huge and rich, a report with
every category displayed looks ugly and non-informative too. Here is the first
and well-known case.
The second case... I'd like to use the data from previous months to compare it
with this month - to see trends. All the data in my dreams should be displayed
on one report (charts, diagramms, etc are really appreciated too).
Unfortunately I have no ideas how does the end-user can select and adjust his
own custom report-view in other ways than script language.

I really want to be useful but don't know where to go :-)
