I think I've found the origin - "Finally, they're here!! These are the
patches I've produced to transfer qif processing to
mymoneystatementreader. They also add category file processing,
transaction matching as per mymoneystatementreader,
extraction of pricing information from buy, sell, etc. transactions, and
one or two 'features' I found along the way."
From [Kmymoney2-developer] KMyMoney2-QifReader Rework 4 Oct 2008.
Thomas did not implement the patches as I submitted them as they did not
meet what he was wanting, but I think the Price bit did survive.
