There is. :) You have been heard. :)

As mentioned in an earlier posting, using default arguments, you may have
any number of parameters, so you may add dimensions. For example something

template<int kg, int m, int s, int A, int K, int mol, int cd, int aux1 = 0,
int aux2 = 0, int aux3 = 0>
class unit;

This gives a system with 7 + 3 user-defined dimensions. It may quite easily
be added to more dimensions, should that be wanted (storing the exponents as
an MPL typelist/vector is another possibility, with similar result, since
it's defined in essentially the same way - using default arguments).

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated. :)

I'm also open to suggestions about any changes or additions.

I'll soon upload the library, so it may be tested. That gives us something
more concrete to test and discuss.
