When reading a MT940 file from Rabobank everything works,
except Rabobank adds the currency to the :25: tag which
criples the account number.
So instead of having 
25:NL00RABO0123456789 
we get 
:25:NL00RABO0123456789 EUR

For me, everything is fine. The standard says that tag 25 is
account identification. So it seems that Rabobank considers
that to identify the account the currency is required in
addition to number.

Should I split this myself? Or is there a possibility that
this could be added to the library?

They seem to want to add some extra information which should
not be there.

I do not think we can assumption on the format of this
field.  So having split in base will break other bank files
which put only account number.
