This BSIP proposes a mechanism to change this behavior to: always match taker
orders with maker orders with better prices first.
This BSIP also sets a principle for dealing with [bitshares-core
issue #453](
In that issue, it's described that sometimes a taker margin call order may be
matched with a maker limit order which is not on the top of the order book.
# Motivation
Make the exchange system more user-friendly.

## Matching a taker limit order
There is a parameter in price feed named MSSR, which stands for "maximum short
squeeze ratio". Maker price of margin call orders is MSSP, which stands for
"maximum short squeeze price", is calculated as `feed_price / ( 100% + MSSR )`.

## Matching taker margin call orders
For [bitshares-core
issue #453](,
in `check_call_orders(...)` function of `database` class,
iterator `limit_itr` will move forward when variable `filled_limit` is `true`.
`filled_limit` will be set to `true` when a limit order get completely filled.
However, since `filled_limit` is declared out of the `while` block,
it doesn't get reset to `false` after `limit_itr` moved forward. That means
after the first limit order get completedly filled, `filled_limit` will always
be `true`, so `limit_itr` will always move forward no matter whether *current*
limit order got completedly filled, so a taker call order may match
with a limit order that is not on the top of the order book.
To fix this, need to change the code to make sure `limit_itr` always references
the limit order on the top of the order book.
