Bug Description

Currently the exchange rate is designed as conversion to the base rate. It's better to have the exchange rate that have the form: <from currency>:<to currency>:<rate>. This is similar to the format used in exchange rate tools, facilitating the direct data importation from such tools to OpenERP, it also reduce the possible wrong configuration when change the base currency (e.g. as of 04-May-2011, 1 EUR = 30,682.00 VND , or 1 VND = 0.0000325924 EUR, so if using EUR as the base, we will have in OpenERP rateVND=30682 (date=04-May-2011, and rateEUR=1. If the base is set to base.VND, then 1VND=30682EUR (!!!).
