[Kmymoney-devel] new (?) issue with per-split memos when duplicating a transaction

I know there have been several discussions regarding issues with memos  
being per split and not per transaction.  I think I found another use  
case where some sort of user notification would be very useful.  To  
demonstrate:  create a transaction which transfers some cash from one  
account to another, and enter a memo.  Since it was entered when the  
transaction was created, the memo appears in both splits.  Now  
duplicate the transaction in one of the accounts, and change the memo.   
In the other account, the memo is still identical to the first  
transaction, since changing the memo was done after the transaction had  
been created.

One possible way to handle this specific case is that when you  
duplicate a transaction, if you start with that transaction open for  
editing, any changes could be treated as if the transaction was being  
initially created, rather than treating it as a later edit.  I'm sure  
there are other use cases where this method would make things more  
difficult, so I'm offering it for discussion rather than specifically  
proposing it be implemented.

Comments and thoughts?
