[OpenSCAD] Any thoughts on using units other than millimeters?

I know that OpenScad doesn't formally have units. But if I make an object:
and export it to STL and print it on a 3D printer, it comes out 10x10x10 mm.
Normally I would really like this. But lately I have been making some parts
as models for things that I will ultimately machine into metal. And
because I live in the US, everything here seems to be be in stuck in the
Imperial system. So to make an object 1"x1"x1", I do this.
function inch(i) = 25.4*i;
cube([inch(1), inch(1), inch(1)]);
And while this is perfectly usable, it would be nice if was a switch that
could change the units from mm to something else. This means that the
on-screen scale would need to change also.
Has this already been considered?
