It's a little more complicated than that -- even though GnuCash doesn't
EXPLICITLY support having more than one book open at the same time, many of
us have done it for years, so I think the protocol ought to be to check the
paste buffer to make sure the transaction to be pasted is from the same
book, and if not, disallow the paste. Ideally there'd also be some
indication about why the paste failed, but that's probably optional as long
as the behavior is explained somewhere.
