personally, i agree that there should be a way to create a document in
the users units.

i would say more: each document created should be in the users preferred

if the script wants to have a control on the current unit it has to
change it and set it back when it's finished.

imo, it's a bug if the unit set the in the preferences is not used when
creating a new document by the scripter.

i'm not sure whether the values set in the preferences should be read by
the scripter. but the scripter should use those values by
default when creating new elements, be able to get the current
value, change it and set it back to the value preferred by the user.
