Other currencies support

Registered by Stéphane Maniaci on 2008-10-06

Implement support for other devises (€ , GBP...).

Questions:
What changes based on the currency (not counting the difference in values) at an application level? Is it only the '$' sign used throughout the application? If so this should be pretty low-hanging fruit.

2008.10.06 michael: another great suggestion, also milestoning for 0.4. I am going to split the currency converter into a separate blueprint.
2008.10.06 aidan: different accounts might have different currencies, for instance a sterling main account, with us dollar and euro saving accounts. Summary should probably show seperate graphs for each currency defined and a total in one reference currency.
2008.10.06 michael: revision 56 of trunk has localized currency support, such that the currencies you see should be by default the correct ones for your locale. It doesn't allow you to choose it yet, nor can you have different currencies for different accounts, but it is at least a step forward for people not using USD.
2008.11.10 michael: revision 72 has all the framework in place to have different currencies, so I just need a menu to switch between them, and notifications to update the GUI
2008.11.17 michael: since revision 80 or so a Settings->Currency menu is in place which switches between them and updates the account list. The grid doesn't update live but that just requires re-clicking the account.
