Thanks for the hint Stefan, I applied it and I am on my way to solving the 
whole thing in a week or two.

I will contact Akopia`s  team to try to submit these patches for currency 
handling. As a non-american (german ?) yourself, do you disagree from the 
way I want to solve this whole mess? I really would like your opinion on 
this. 'ricans have great qualities, but they have such a huge internal 
market ready to buy (280 M people), that handling 2-3 different currencies, 
is not their priority. Being Canadian, and even worse, being a Quebecer 
(latin people, read frenchman like) where we as a people are really pissed 
when we don't get served in our own language and money, I have got to solve 
this whole thing before I can push Interchange as a solution.

What I am trying to figure out, is: is this a general problem? Or mine 
only? If it is mine only I will not bother Akopia with it, and I will keep 
these patches for myself.

I will add a variable to catalog.cfg to set handling multi-currency on/off, 
and modify every currency handling for orders to be properly addressed and 
submit diff file to the Akopia team.

Thanks for the help, it is appreciated.
