or what most people will do (as you said - and your examples should encourage)

using namespace SI;
quantity<length> q1(1.5 * meters);

which seems pretty much as neat as you can get.

Thanks - hope it wasn't too much of a PITA to change. (I've amazed myself by missing the obvious 1st time round - eg Math Toolkit
where it took a question on the Boost to suggest the 'obvious' addition of = double).
