Estimate field adds all numbers?

I just did something that gave me a rather interesting result. I made a case called "Kitchen Sink" and gave this string in the estimate field: "6 by myself, 1 with plumber". I filled out the other fields(unimportant), and added it. In the full case view, the estimate shows as 7. I went back and checked to make sure I typed it correctly, and I did. I would assume that any numbers typed in this field are added together...is that correct? If so, that's quite the neat feature. Without having to add anything, you can just punch in a bunch of values and the form will calculate it for you.

Well, in your case, yes, it added all numbers. But "Estimates" is meant to be used with text like "1h30m."
