Hi Kirk,

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you - I took yesterday 
afternoon off.

And now I think there's 'G' as well.

I don't think I can comment on this, unfortunately. I always thought the 
GC logs did this unit conversion. At least I think I remember seeing it 
in the 1.4.2 time frame. I would be very nervous about making such a 
change since it affects all the collectors. Changing something like this 
would be controversial. There will be some, like you, who would welcome 
the change and there will be others who will complain bitterly. It's 
probably not going to happen soon, and we would need to make it switchable.
