kcalc, revisited, FEATURE REQUEST

Hi all;

I did solve the previous complaint about the TDE version of kcalc losing 
its binary input and bitfield display, by making two links in the 
menu's, one to the old KDE kcalc, and one to the TDE kcalc.

But I/we have another problem.  Back around kubuntu 6.04 LTS time, kcalc 
had a pair of menu macros to do inch to metric, and metric to inch.

By ubu 10.04 LTS, those disappeared, apparently never to be seen again.

Whats chances those could be resurrected for the R14.2 version of TDE?

Surely the older codebase still exists someplace, and for us who live in 
both worlds as I was in electronics for 55 years of my working life, and 
that pair of macro's were, while they existed, handier than bottled beer 
& sliced bread in keeping the two measurement worlds on the same page 
around my piece of this planet.  But now its gone.  Sniff...

Cheers, Gene Heskett
