This comes to no surprise, as I haven't added documentation for my library
yet :o)

Of course. This is why I tried to keep the constant library independent of
a concrete unit library and provide a basic mechanism to support certain
type-mappings that are needed for all unit libraries.

I'll have a look and see if I can adapt the example for your library.
Please note that my choice of YANL for the first example wasn't meant as a
vote for or against any specific unit library. My goal is to support unit
libraries in general, not just a specific one.

Translating the example from one unit library to another is also a good
test for my design, to verify that it works as I envisioned it. Will need
some time for it, though...
