Pretty Please, add (user settable) nicknames for Payee's that can be seen in the enter payment window and account register transaction. With many OFX systems limiting user flexibility in setting payee info (like no editing via OFX and account field value checks), the problem of selecting a correct payee list entry when there are many for the same payee continues to get worse.

    Now have another payee that I would dearly like to have a nickname for. This one's name has no relation to the actual payee's/account's name (payments handled by 3rd party) and, since there is only one so far, the account number does not show in the bill pay payee list. It can not be that hard to implement. A specially delineated nickname field in the payee name that tells MD to leave the enclosed text (nickname) out of OFX comm would suffice - [ ]'s would work well.
