When the result of an Op on 2 quanties is dimensionless the type of the result
is the same as
quantity_lhs::value_type Op quantity_lhs::value_type

Not any... they have to model some Concept, but I need to write out the Concept
requirements properly (FWIW there is a Value_type(should be *ValueType*)
concept) and the requirements on value_types in the current implementation
should be relaxed if possible.
