Need to edit the "Exchange Rate" on reconciled transaction

Need to edit the "Exchange Rate" on reconciled transaction

We have two bank accounts under different currencies. We are constantly transferring funds from one currency to another. Then, at month-end when we reconcile the two accounts we might find that exchange rates in Zoho Books does not match up with what the bank was offering on the transaction date. 

In our case the source account has been reconciled. The amount transferred to the destination, however, is different than Books has recorded. And so, we want to update the Exchange Rate for that transaction in Books. This would NOT change the transaction amount in the reconciled source account. Instead, it would ONLY impact the amount deposited in the destination account. However, when we try to edit the Exchange Rate for the transaction, Zoho Books is giving us an error saying: "This transaction has been reconciled. Hence, the fields which affect the transaction amount cannot be modified."

I would think our situation is quite common. Other than unreconciling the source account, making the change, then re-reconciling, what are our other options?
