Heh. People feel rises in sales tax elsewhere too. When VAT rises merchants
all raise their prices, they don't normally swallow it (or if they do, they
make a big fuss over how awesome they are).

The US system is a complete pain in the ass. You never know how much money
you actually need to pay for anything unless you happen to know the local
rate and do the multiplication in your head. There's a reason this system
is not used in big chunks of the world economy.

I would love to know how to do it. If you have an intuitive GUI in mind
please show us so other wallet authors can copy it :)
