Chris, No, it's a good time to ask. scm/gnucash collects all of the guile binding code from the various modules. I don't know what "timeperiod-utilities" is supposed to be, but it sounds like it should be an extension of src/engine/gnc-date.cpp. We want to use the same date code throughout GnuCash so whatever you need in timeperiod-utilities should be written in C++ and should wrap boost::date_time to hide the implementation (so that we can easily switch to another implementation if e.g. the C++ committee adds something to the standard library or we decide that ICU provides a better fit) and then provide Guile bindings via SWIG to support your report changes. It would be a good idea to get a PR up so that we can give you more detailed guidance.
