Unfortunately, the main routine that displays coordinates does not 
know whether the value to be displayed is an X coord, a Y coord or a 
length, so there is no way to change this in a central place. Changing 
the code handling each of the fields individually would be a huge 
effort because there are so many of them, so this is unlikely to 
happen.
