--- Comment #3 from Jack <ostroffjh at users.sourceforge.net> ---
Think of a transaction as an atomic entity, in that it represents one or more
transfers of funds between accounts.  For proper bookkeeping, it all has to
happen at once.   If you allow different splits to have different timestamps,
you are essentially making money disappear or appear out of nowhere for a
period of time.  For large companies, the "float" account is what "accounts
payable" and "accounts receiveable" represent.  Perhaps there might be a way to
simplify the use of a float account from the perspective of the user, but I
don't think it would be simple to implement.

Perhaps we need to add this issue to the FAQ.
