Overseas Money Issues

This is not a warning, but a question on my part that I hope will get a good discussion going as it's something that could cause problems between artists and their clients.

How do you, as an artist, handle your foreign client's payments? Do you only accept your own currency, or are you willing to accept payment in your client's currency? While Paypal for the most part eliminates this problem since payment can be made in most major currencies without any problems, how about when your client is not able to make use of it and has to pay by money order or some other "traditional" payment method and wants to pay in their own currency?

For anybody who's had experience as a North American receiving payment from a European in Euros, or vice-versa, what were the pros and cons?
