Excellent wallet.

I noticed a restored seed only shows balances/txes from account 0, but I know there exists funds on other accounts generated from that seed; it shows a partial balance for now.

I would love if it could handle multiple Monero accounts within the wallets since I tend to generate many of these in addition to subaddresses.

Thanks for the development cycles and the great wallet experience so far!

My personal opinion on accounts would be to skip full support, for example receiving to specific accounts.

The reason is that from my pov main use of accounts is as a rudimentary form of coin control, but feather has advanced coin control which renders that use obsolete. Without that driving need, I think it's better from a security point of view to use separate wallets (with unique private keys) anywhere accounts would be used. Therefore, I don't think the account system is really worth keeping.

Instead, I would recommend to go with a minimum level of support, just enough so that wallets made in other software can be imported into feather with all existing funds made available.

Something like: show all outputs, from every account, under the existing History/coins pages with an optional column that says what account each is associated with.
