Multi Currency Issues

I recently bought some mutual funds which are denominated in USD,
my default currency is EUR. Get quotes retrieves prices in USD. This
leads to some minor problems:

- In the main account tree and the reports these fund evaluate to 0.00 EUR,
  because there is no price in EUR but only in USD. 
  I am working on a patch to do a "two stage" price db lookup to solve this

- Do I really need to have a currency account in USD to get USD currency
