Clarifications needed in FS: Fiscal Year, rounding logic

Description

Here are two items that came up on the mailing list (from Soham). Want to make
sure these are clarified in the documentation.

1. In LoanBO.java ->applyRounding()
the business rule is only applied if principal is not zero in any installment..
nowhere could i find the information as to why this is so? including the
functional specification

2. another example (where someone else was already confused before me
org.mifos.application.accounts.savings.util.helpers ->savingHelper class
public class SavingsHelper {
private Calendar cal;
// TODO: pick from configuration
/** I assume the hardcoding of 1 Jan 2006 is trying to say
that the default fiscal year is January 1 to December 31.
Do we use the year?
What does this control, versus
{@link SavingsConstants#POSTING_DAY}? */
public Date getFiscalStartDate() {
try {
SimpleDateFormat format = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy");
return format.parse("01/01/2006");
} catch (ParseException pe) {
throw new RuntimeException(pe);
}
}

not to be tracked as part of our v1.1 bug statistics.

Re-assigning to Kay-- who is our savings interest functional guru.

The FS has been updated to remove reference of fiscal year-- we should make
sure rounding rules and savings interest rules are clearly documented.
