Sorry, I thought you told the API "I want the exchange rate at 14:00
time".  If so, we'd all get the same answer regardless of our local
timezone.  It would be nice to know what the APIs timezone is so we
know what "14:00" really means but that doesn't matter for beancount.

If you only tell the API "I want the exchange rate now", then I think
beancount should store the time in UTC.

Ok, (I think) I see the problem.

If the API queried by beancount only provides 1 rate per day, we could
easily find out what a "day" is according to them by doing a query
every hour for 24 hours.

Or just pick mid-day UTC.
