Hi Paul,

Thanks for the support - I think we'd all like to have a functional
units library. The Darwinian model
for open source obviously works best when there's some competition...

I've added comments with the expected output to the end of the source

Sorry - everything but unit_example_1.cpp should compile as is. I was
including a utility
header that demangles gcc typenames to make them somewhat more
readable. I'm attaching
a fixed version of unit_example_1.cpp and a new header utility.hpp to
be put in the mcs/units
directory that factors out the demangling code. Demangling only works
on gcc at this point, FYI.

Naturally, if and when we get to the point where that matters, I'm
happy to change it.

Fixes are in the Vault - I've also separated out the files into
documentation and source to
let me update them separately. Please keep the feedback coming...
