Anybody know if Odoo supports GIFI for book keeping?

If you're not familiar with GIFI it means "General Index of Financial Information". It was created by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) in 1999. The GIFI is a system which assigns a unique code to a list of items commonly found on business's income statements, balance sheets, and statements of retained.

Using the GIFI lets corporations electronically file their T2 income tax return, and in turn means faster processing of  return.

Various tools such as LedgerSMB supports GIFI http://book.ledgersmb.org/1.3/split-book/sec-coa-gifi.html
