[GNC-dev] Use trading accounts only for currency conversion

As I've written in https://bugs.gnucash.org/show_bug.cgi?id=797227:

I suspect that the purpose of the trading accounts was to account for the
loss/gain in currency conversion (only). Not sure if applying the trading
accounts for other commodities makes sense. These should be accounted for
through Capital Gains/Losses accounts.
I find that mixing other commodities trades in trading accounts almost
destroys their usefulness.
Limiting their implementation to Currency commodities only would make more
sense. What do others think?
