[Qgis-developer] Processing params always n meters?

Hi all,
when analyses are done on degrees CRS, often parameters are difficult to
use (e.g. buffer width in degrees is not easy to calculate). The usual
strategy is to convert layers first to a metric CRS.
Would it make sense to always input params as meters, and reproject the
parameters as appropriate? This would be far easier for the user.
All the best.
