Yep. It's slow to compile. I'd love to start a dialogue on
performance issues as optimizing metaprogramming compile times is about
as far from my domain of expertise as it gets...

Nope - the dimensional analysis part is completely unit system
independent. For all intents and purposes, the SI/CGS/etc... unit
systems are just applications of the core library for dimensioned
