stock transactions  are not treated differently than any other kind of
transaction, and, in that sense, are 'automaticallyally' supported.

The price databasee is not currently trimmed down by the book code.
I guess it should be.

However, any report that shows ROI or uses a FIFO to calculate
profit/loss will have to look at old/closed books to figure out what 
the original purchase price was.  That's the bad news.  The good news is
I don't think we have any FIFO-based reports in gnucash yet.  :-)
