And while we are already redefining the fundamental constants of measuring, we 
could redefine the meter to be exactly three feet and the kilogram to be 
exactly two pounds. I have no idea what havoc that would cause for gallons and 
litres, but I am quite sure musicians will be thrilled to tune their 
instruments to a standard of 380,16 "new hertz" ;)
