Subject: [boost] [Units & Spirit] libraries

This is my first mail, so I hope I have sent it to the right address :)
I am using the Units library for Dimensional Analysis. So far it is very useful. Up till now I am using it in a hard-coded/compile time way as in a test.cpp.
My inteterst is in using Units as part of a larger run-time system so I need some way of making my code more flexible. Lambda library is an option here but I would also like to create units and quanties from string input as well as being able to parse these strings to units and then store the units in a database.
Can I use Spirit (and Serialization) for these features? Maybe the functionality already exist, and I have not found it.
best regrads
