I'd also second that.  Having spent 15 years under the metric system and 23
years under the English system, I'd say metric wins hands down.  I've done
just what you suggested on my web pages.  However, some things I still have
to use English measurements for, until the manufacturers switch.  Who would
know what 1.9cm plywood is?  Or a 121.9 cm light bulb?  It's not going to
be before the 21st century arrives....
