Oh I'm expecting less and less from people these days and that's all right.

That is very generous of you. I hope that it won't come to money 
nevertheless as I still don't believe that this project is beneficial to 
only a group of people but to Blender as it seeks to take its rightful 
place on the market. Your comparing the use of the imperial system to 
poor eye sight demonstrate a lack of understanding of what the problem 
really is about I think. In any case I understand your lack of interest.
It shouldn't be that hard a feature to implement : after all it only 
needs that a mean to define the number of subdivisions of a B.U. could 
be set and access to that through Python. The rest could be done by 
script, something I could manage...

Usually not much when my schedule allows.
