Explicitly record home currency in foreign currency transactions

For expenses not in a "home currency", it would be great to be able to have an extra field to be able to put the actual amount in the home currency (e.g. from credit card statement) and also have another field to be able to separately track any exchange or transaction fees incurred.

Use case: when I'm overseas, I buy something for $10 (foreign currency). Lets say that comes up on my credit card statement as $12 (in my own currency) + exchange rate fee of $0.50. I want to be reimbursed for exactly $12.50 in my own currency. Without being able to record what it came to on my credit card and the transaction fee, the reimbursement will not be able to match my exact expenditure.
