Bug Description

As we have a a project to give Inkscape more precise feature (in geometrical aspect), i think it should be great to let fields calculate the value if everything given by the user is OK.
For example, if i want to draw a building at 1/50° i just could write the "real size*0.02" and inkscape does the job (including eventual unit conversion).
AFAIK, Scribus already uses it for frames and it could be a good thing to be inspired of.
