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 ...
