Thanks for your patch. I just pushed a patch along the lines of yours
which uses the built-in facilities of orgmode. It handles all effort
durations that are defined in `org-duration-string-to-minutes'. This
brings it in line with the rest of orgmode's effort handling. It also
fixes the documentation in org.texi.

Can you check and see if this fixes all your issues?
