Inset tool sensitivity is dependent on object scale

Short description of error
Sensitivity of many of the modeling tools is dependent on their scale. That is not helpful... for anything... ever... There's not a single case where such behavior would be desired.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
1, Create a new blender scene.
2, Select default cube, go to edit mode and perform inset
3, Notice the sensitivity is fine
4, Exit edit mode, and scale the cube up 10x (10 scale)
5, Enter edit mode again and perform another inset
6, Notice the inset sensitivity is totally out of control
7, Exit the edit mode, and apply the scale to the cube
8, Enter the edit mode again, perform another inset, and notice the sensitivity is fine again

Result: Sensitivity is of modeling tools is dependent on the scale of the mesh

Expected: Sensitivity of modeling tools is NOT dependent on the scale of the mesh

This behavior requires users to compulsively apply transforms every single time they perform any scaling manipulation of the mesh they work with so that the modeling tools remain usable. This in turn makes the entire workflow quite uncomfortable.

We already have a report of this for bevel, which shares the same code.

Beyond that this bug report is too broad, and more user feedback than a bug report.

1, The bug report this has been closed as a duplicate of concerns completely different issue. This one is related to the scale, the other one is not.

2, The example with inset tool is not broad, it's very specific.

So the report is basically thrown away, because the fix of the other issue, which this is supposedly duplicate of, will most likely not solve this issue.

Ok, I confused it with the other report.
