Not yet.  I haven't worked on any versions newer than Quickbooks 2004

I have looked into it a little bit.  It seems the principle limitation is that
they require a windows application to do the sync.  I was thinking of something

Interchange <-> Internet <-> Windows App <-> QuickBooks

There doesn't need to be anything Interchange-specific about the module either,
so it could be put on CPAN.
