I must admit that both the ouput format and the quantity typedef names, I
frankly havent done much work on, beyond getting something that works. I would
welcome help from anyone regarding writing a specification in both areas.

In the output area one think lacking is going beyond ASCII. It would be nice to
output Ohms as Ω rather than R for example. Any help with that would be
appreciated too. I dont really know where to start with that.
