 A voice from the back of the room seconds that motion.

 The work I do is heavily involved with measurements, and there are
 all kinds of interesting, difficult, and even unsolved issues. I
 suggest that a measurement library would be built on top of an
 existing units library, not as part of it.

 I really don't think you want to open this can of worms yet. :-)
