| What I might not have been clear enough so far is that I definitely
| believe that the core library should be an essentially abstract
| mathematical library (just like <cmath>) that knows no physics
| or chemistry. Then libraries with specific applications, like the
| SIunits library can be built on top of that.
| I also believe that the typelists described by Hugo Duncan way back when
| form a good basis on which to build this library.

If this can be achieved, I agree it would be excellent, but it needs actually
doing, and I am definitely not qualified...
