Breaking this out from #378.p.
With the register command or multicolumn balance reports, when you specify a report start date, -H/--historical causes the balances to start from the balance on the start date, rather than zero. This mode isn't supported by the single-column balance report or by hledger-ui, and should be. Related, there is some cruft and overlap between single and multi column balance reports; they should be combined/refactored/cleaned up in some way.

@simonmichael lib: more history awareness for account transactions report #392
The account transactions report (and eg hledger-ui's register screen) no
longer aborts showing historical balances when -E/--empty/nonzero mode
or cur: are in effect.

@simonmichael balance: make -H work with single-column reports #392
-H/--historical now makes a single-column balance report with a start
date show historical balances reflecting earlier postings.  This is
equivalent to specifying no start date, but it's more consistent.

@simonmichael ui: show historical balances whenever possible #392
hledger-ui now tries to show historical balances always, including
when (to limit transactions on the register screen) a report start date
is specified. This means that:

- the accounts screen balances are not disturbed by a start date

- the register screen is now a little better at showing the running
  historical balance. It's still not very good at it; some filter
  queries will cause it to fall back to showing the running total of
  visible transactions. But it's no longer disturbed by Z (nonzero mode)
  or a cur: query term.
