Ah, but there is no magic! If you issue
$ ledger -f accounting.ledger balance
this is the result:

The balance is zero because of the double accounting; the interesting part
are the "Assets" in the beginning. It states that there are €2647.19 in the
bank, which is true: €1047.19 in the checking account, and €1600 in a
Livret A, for which we just got €4.39 of interests in 2021, and €7.07 over
the last three years :)

The Bank has a positive sign, and also the Expenses, whereas the Income is
negative. Admittedly this is counterintuitive; one could put positive signs
to Income and Expenses, and then one would have
   Bank = Income - Expenses, or Bank + Expenses - Income = 0.
With the different sign of Income, one ends up having
   Bank + Expenses + Income = 0,
which is the last line.

I also opted for putting our hardware into the balance sheet, which are
the lines Stock and Equity. Here the € should read "piece" instead.
And I have actually stopped doing so a while ago, for instance we bought
three additional Overdrives in 2019. (Where are these five machines
actually?) I am not sure if having the inventory in the balance is a good
idea. Maybe if we put "pc" instead of "€" it would become clearer.
