Agent.trade( Agent partner, str good1, num amt1, str good2, num amt2 )

Exchanges a quantity of one good for a quantity of another good, and records the demand for each. Requires at least two goods to have been registered, but does not require a monetary good. Ordinary usage would be giving up amt1 of good1 to get amt2 of good2, but negative amounts can reverse the direction.
