New issue 281: Query "id" column does not identify transactions uniquely

Vincent Vu:

I'm trying to use BQL to get transactions from my journal into R for analysis, 
and have run into a problem with identifying transactions.  According to the 
BQL documentation the "id" column should identify transactions uniquely.  
However, this fails if two distinct transactions have exactly the same content.

As an example of when this (reasonably?) occurs, my wife and I belonged to the 
same gym for a few years, and that gym charged our credit card twice on a 
monthly basis for the exact same amounts.  The content of the imported 
transactions are identical, but they are actually distinct.
