What happens for the "normal" case of Euroland users, who have EUR  
accounts and maybe a small number of differently denominated accounts  
(USD etc.)? Do they still have one EUR line in the summary bar? Or  
suddenly a second one?

The register's summary bar can be enabled just fine; I think this  
won't surprise any current user because nobody has old euro-currencies  
still around. This can IMHO safely be made always-active.

The account tree summary bar, well, I wonder whether an extra EUR line  
is usefuly anymore at all. Maybe that whole preference should instead  
be named "Enable extra EUR summary line"?
