Nope.  The gnucash code base is a little messy these days.  This is
what you get when one packages lives for a long time, morphing from
one project (xacc) into another (gncuash).  There are quite a few
inconsistencies in the naming of parts in the code.  From the old xacc
C code, most prominent in the engine, we have xaccFooBar.  Newer C
code uses gnc_foo_bar, and on the scheme side, we most often use
gnc:foo-bar, though once we migrate to using modules, much of that
should go away...

Hope this helps.
