I'm not sure I follow you here...could you elucidate
a little more? At this point, I'm not sure whether the constants
are appropriate for inclusion in the library or as an example -
what I would prefer to do is to encapsulate them in something
like the measurement class so that the errors are also
accessible, but I'm worried that trying to include such a class
would start to get out of the scope of the core library itself.
In particular, I think that a measurement-like class that does
standard propagation of errors would also be critical for any
Boost numerical methods library (GSL provides a result type
that encapsulates value/error pairs) and could share an
