Description David 2009-08-18 16:22:20 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.3.0)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Mandriva RPMs

KRunner Unit converter should use krunner's ability to display multiple results when entering just one unit, instead of just converting it to the base unit.

For example, when entering "100mph" the result is:
"44.704 metres per second"

There is a small chance that this will help, but it most likely won't.

What it should do is display more results like:
"44.704 metres per second"
"160.934 kilometres per hour"
"86.8976 knots"
"0.130332 machs"
etc.

With the more common units on top and the less common units on bottom.

The user would get the result quicker, especially if he's a slow writer.
