For one of the places I'm using it, loading it all is practical.  Even
so, I'm not sure the DG is a real benefit (although it seems to be
"the" way of doing things)--the rest of the program updates a database
when data changes, allowing simultaneous access on multiple machines.
Updating both the DG and the DB is one more thing to deal with . . .

The debts and asset screen, though . . . a couple of dozen entries,
which can be dependent upon other entries (e.g., second mortgage).
