Enhance Account .getNextChequeNumberLong() to allow user defined number of days (default 180)

The current logic for get next check number when a user presses '+' in the cheque field in a transaction is that the code looks back 180 days to 'derive' the last cheque number used. The program actually calls:
System.getProperty("moneydance.checknum_series_threshold", "180")
to define the look-back period, defaulting to 180 days.

It would be useful if Moneydance could be changed to allow a preference key to be added to config.dict and this line above (in Account.class) be changed to .getPreferences().getSetting("moneydance.checknum_series_threshold","180").

Thus the user could define a shorter window for lookback, and allow them to manually enter new check numbers and restart their numbering system….
