It is NOT that your lib is not GOOD enough, but having waited so long, and with
so many different views, my guess is that Boosters are not going to be rushed
into a judgement. As Reece suggests, there may be a place for two libraries that
meet different needs. Some people can't tolerate slow compile, some don't value
dimensional analysis. We've already moved on a lot since 'SI units only' were
the limit of our aspirations.

Your proposal has had the considerable benefit in provoking a whole lot of
thought, and anyone who considers it useful can press it into service right now.

| basically I accept the point... but the next... next step is ?

I suggest: continue to post your enhancements, if any, into the sandbox and CVS
