Grocery conversions

It would be great to see some conversions which take account of more than one system - for example converting mass AND currency exchange rates, so I can convert a price for a grocery item from dollars per pound to euros per kilo, or GBP per kilo, (or any other currency) in one simple conversion.

Thanks for the idea! Actually we thought about it, but could not come up with an easy to understand layout for such a calculator. The number of combinations for two-systems conversions is huge and creating a separate calculator for each combination is not feasible.

Another problem I see is that the "conversion" from Euro to Dollars is not fixed (it fluctuates over time - sometimes you get more dollars for your Euro and sometimes less) whereas you always get exactly the same amount of pound for you kilogram.
