I'll go to work on it very soon

I'm not sure if any classification system built into this library would get
to affect UDT designers but at least it will let those be fully supported.

Disallowing mixed value_types would be a pitty.
I hope I get the lib to the point that it can help you sort out your
problems with the physical-quantities lib.
