If exact rate is required, there is a way to achieve it as mentioned
in the commit message, i.e. by first invoking round rate over reqd. rate
and if it doesn't match, bail out w/o invoking set_rate.

And it seems requirement of CCF w.r.t to round rate is to return closest
possible rate.

As you prefer reverting the above commit, I will proceed so, hmm.. got
not so simple merge conflict, wish there was a command,
git revert logical ..
