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.
