I often find myself manually entering interest (and according tax) entries for savings accounts in gnucash. Is there a plugin or extension available where I can enter the initial value, the interval and the interest (and tax rate) as well as the run time and the extension automatically generates these entries?

Offtopic: If no such thing is available: I'd like to write one. Does anyone know whether sample plugins exist for Gnucash or if good documentation is available?

What GnuCash does is that when you reconcile the statement, it asks you for the interest for the period, and adds it then. Works great for me.
