it worked! Great. Just one other thing:

When doing a DEM to EUR tranaction in the target account I now read the 
"META: DEM->EUR" string as "source" account of this specific transaction.

Ok, that's what it is but it surely isn't usefull any more. Would it be a 
good idea to mark the accounts that are just created to transact from former-
European-currencies to EUR as special and "hide" them in this field? Or 
write "my incoming wage (via DEM-EUR)" as source account? Using the via-
notation it would even make a bit sense for non EURo countries that use 
trans-currency transactions for other reasons.
