This was the point of my original post: you can have units library without
dimensional analysis, but it is practically useless for a lot of
applications - pretty much any application that requires combining
different units "correctly", in fact.
If you want a units library that does the "right thing" when you divide
energy by time, you need dimensional analysis support - as has been
posted elsewhere, all current example libraries do this.
