Allow a unit of measure on a custom metric

If I submit a custom metric value, it could be a time in minutes, a percentage, a rate, a cost, data size, or anything.  It would be great to be able to pass an optional unit of measure.  For example:

I can do this now in C#:

StackifyLib.Metrics.SetGauge("SQL Server", "Time since last backup", timeInMinutes);

I would like to do this:

StackifyLib.Metrics.SetGauge("SQL Server", "Time since last backup", timeInMinutes, "min");

I would then like to see "min" appear after the value in Stackify.

Other cases where this would be useful might be for percentages and for units such as "KB/min", "GB", "files/min".

    The unit of measure could also provide an axis label on a graph.
