1) I am not sure why we are resuming a 5 month old conversation.
2) I wrote my original note because the currency design at that time
broke some other things I was trying to do. So I was trying to
get the best of both worlds. If you take the narrow view of what
gnucash can currently do, you are right. But if you take the
broad view, of what gnucash could do or how it could be used,
that particular currency design was an anchor chain.
Anyway, I thought it was fixed/modifed to my satisfaction;
unless it reverted ...
