Racks and cabinets (even "Euroracks"), Eurocards,
DIN 41612 (and other) connectors all are measured
in decimal inch-fractions.

I don't intend to... I'm geared up to do decimal inch-
-fractions, and that's what I will stay doing. In fact
the first thing to do on any new 'metric' component is
to do a quick /25.4 on the calculator.... I'm never
suprised when it drops neatly into an imperial number.
