Sometimes, too often, when adding transactions via hledger add, I'll make a mistake or accept a default I realize I shouldn't have.
When that happens, I have no choice but to ctrl-C and re-invoke hledger add and start again, even if I had already added most of the transaction details correctly.

For those occasions, it would be great to be able to tell hledger add to "re-ask".
A transaction is completed with a single ".", could something like a single "<" cause hledger add to re-do the last prompt ?

Another good idea.

Added in darcs. You don't get to restart after the full transaction is displayed though. We may need to add an extra confirmation prompt after each transaction for this.

It now shows and confirms each transaction before recording it.
