I like the idea of a pop-up in the statusbar - and I expect that's what most
users will use to change the units.  But if a user does double-click a
ruler, how should Gimp interpret that?

Perhaps it should popup a dialog saying:

  Ruler configuration           
   Show rulers: [X] 
   Image units:  |- Inches |

   Tip: you can create a guide
     by dragging from a ruler
     into the image

I know all this functionality is available elsewhere, but it makes Gimp
