Multiple sales journals with independent number sequences in a single company

In our company we need to have multiple sales journals with independent number sequences in a single company. In detail we plan to have the following sales journals:

  • one sales journal for monthly subscriptions
  • one sales journal for quarterly subscriptions
  • one sales journal for regular (one-time) sales

We have already checked, it is legitimate to have multiple sales journals in our country (Germany). Indeed this would ease accouting and tax audits a lot for us.

Unfortunately we have not yet found a way to implement that in Odoo v8. We think we have managed to create multiple sales journals already. However there seems to be no way to select the appropriate sales journal, e.g. when creating a quotation, creating an invoice, ...

Do you have any pointers for us?

You can also try this, it's from the trunk (i'm not sure it's for V8.0): https://www.odoo.com/apps/trunk/sale_journal_sequence/

That should be easy job... 
Simply define journals as describer, 

Every journal has a sequence field, wich defines what sequence to use for it. Several journal can use one sequence or,
in your case you can define separate sequences for each journal.. 

Depending on selected journal on document the number squence will be applied.
This applies to invoices, but not for sale orders.
