There may be some confusion (again) on my part as to what is returning, and how it's useful to the
quantity directly. I was assuming from Noah's post that it was either
the integer of the currently selected item in the combo box, or the
string of the currently selected item in the combo box. I can see how
both of those could be immediately useful to the run-time quantity.
It would either know that the number, say 5, mapped to feet, or it
would be passed "feet".

What does your version do exactly? What is
combo.selected_item().data() returning, why is it a double, and how
does from_value use it?
