This appears to be similar to the upcoming SIunits library.
You may want to postpone your money<> class until you
could have had a look at SIunits (not yet available,
but "really soon" (says Walter Brown)).

Not that SIunits will solve the money<> problem, but
it may offer valuable implementation hints and you may
want to make money<> interoperable with SIunits
("dollars per liter").
