Actual Exchange Rate for Expenses and Payments

When a transaction's currency and the bank account's currency differs, it should be possible to enter the Actual Exchange Rate so that the bank account's balance does not have to be manually corrected. The current work-around to update the applicable exchange rate in the settings before entering each new multi-currency transaction is very cumbersome.

The applies (at least) for Expenses, Bills' Outgoing payments and Invoice's Incoming payments, and is especially important for bank accounts which do not support bank reconciliation (where the actual exchange rate can be entered). 

If the exchange rate (or its inverse) is already defined in the settings, this could be used as the default (editable) exchange rate, for organisations used to the current implementation.
