--- Comment #6 from Jack <ostroffjh at users.sourceforge.net> ---
I actually do use it fairly often.  I have many old accounts of various sorts
closed.  Unfortunately, I seem to need to modify transactions in those accounts
on occasion, and have to reopen the account to edit the transaction and then
close the account.  If closed accounts are not shown, I need to toggle the
display, make my edit, and then toggle again.

So, I agree with having only a single place to control this, but we should
think carefully about the wording.  Here I am less concerned with new users
than with existing users who need to toggle the view, and only remember one or
the other of the old settings, but not both.  We should also definitely retain
a keyboard shortcut.  

Might it make sense to have only a single setting, but place it both on the
view menu and within the Configure KMM dialog?  The View could just be "Show
all accounts." but in the configure dialog the wording could be longer (such as
"Show all accounts.  Without this set, closed accounts will not be displayed in
the Accounts View or on the Home Page.")
