Hi Paul,

thanks for your comments and hints:

The docs are still preliminary and some of work has surely to be done
(especially the reference is still missing).

I think that ODEs are quite basic objects in physics, mathematics, etc
with huge ranges of applications.

At the moment it is not possible to use Boost.Units. We are redesigning
the library and it might be possible to enable Boost.Units at some
point. But I suspect, that Boost.Units will not work in general with
odeint. I can go in details if you like.
