While all this discussion about abstract qualities that a dimensional
analysis/units library
should have is interesting off and on, from the standpoint of an
implementer I think it would
be vastly more useful for prospective users of such a library to
produce syntactically correct
C++ snippets of how they envision the library functioning. Both
desired functionality/syntax
and potential errors that should be caught would be useful test cases.
It would make things
much simpler than trying to hit a diffuse cloud of vaguely conceptual
meanderings and I
think could also help to keep the discussion more tightly focused on
issues most salient to Boost.
