Perhaps I can just add that there was a significant feeling that a
'meta-units' system that allowed 'User Defined Units' - from which could be
created the familiar SI units system, but would also allow more unusual
units systems, for example used by the finance world, or really weird like

The ultimate dimension/unit-checking library?

We are waiting out to find out if this is possible, which seems likely - and
practicable in compile speed, which is less certain.
