Problem with setting currency name

Yeh, I probably shouldn't have my people trading in pints of Hobgoblin, but is there any way to make it say "pint of Hobgoblin" in the singular and "pints of Hobgoblin" when in the plural. In short, change the word that is pluralised in the phrase.

We've had this come up before, and we came to this determination:

Setting up an algorithm that can handle all the variant plurals in the English language (and beyond!) would be far more trouble than it was worth. So, no.

How about allowing users to choose their own plural? That would be just another field in the settings screen...
