Bug Description

You know what would be super rad is an more readable syntax for working with whisper. 3600:87600

could be: 1h:10y

This would also apply to the storage-schemas.conf file as well.

I like this suggestion very much. I have added it to trunk, the supported units are 's' for seconds, 'm' for minutes, 'h' for hours, 'd' for days, and 'y' for years (defined as exactly 365 days, so not leap year aware). Months are ill-defined as a general unit of time so I'm not going to include them, use days or years instead.

Note that if you specify something like 10h:2d it will round down to 4 datapoints, only covering 40 hours.
