Could Alfred have inline conversion functionality = so if you type in 75m one of the solutions offered is various conversions of this to other distance units (e.g. 82.02 ft), based on a guess triggered by the inclusion of some qualifying symbol - so £20 would return currency conversions, 8kg would return weight mass conversions etc. ?

 

I don't think this idea is very novel - I suspect that someone has thought of it before.  If so, consider this a "+1" for that one.

There are a few workflows for conversion already here on the forum. Take a look at these and see if that's what you have in mind:

Depending on your requirements and your knowledge, you could either tweak these yourself or make suggestions to the developers for improvements. :)
