This looks like a very nice starting point for integration of
Boost.Units with Lambda/Function. We naturally are enthusiastic about
anything that leverages existing Boost technology and will extend the
applicability of the Units library. If you are interested in putting
together some extended examples and a test suite for this stuff and
working to ensure that it functions well on the covered range of
compilers, I think a <boost/units/lambda.hpp> header would be a nice
extension to the library.
