You've left the realm of "user" questions -- this should migrate
to -devel.  Please CC responses there (and feel free to drop -user).

Are you offering to implement such a feature?  You'd need to double-link
the objects, because I suspect most of the time you'd want to see the
list of stock transactions for a particular account, rather that asking
a particular transaction which account it's tied to.  I have no idea how
you'd represent this in the UI.  I also don't understand why you want
to do this in the first place.  I would think that this would be better
served by a report that combines the same stock from different accounts
into a single count.
