I've completed this feature and submitted the required patches to the 
list.. All but the last patch are applied to trunk (and the second last 
patch is being re-applied with a bit of a tweak).  I don't know if there 
are plans for it to be in 2.2 though, so you may have to wait until next 
year for the 2.4 release.

The specific changes you'll see in whichever release uses it :
    - ability to fetch the latest exchange rate from within the transfer 
dialog, rather than having to go to the web and look it up manually
    - validation on the a/p or a/r account used (2.2 lets you post to 
the wrong-currency account), for both post and payment
    - ability for line items in different currencies.  On post, you'll 
be given a transfer dialog for each differing currency so you can 
specify the exchange rate
