Another alternative might be to provide a Boost.Units wrapper-interface for your library. It could serve as an alternative and/or extension to the capabilities provided in <boost/units/cmath.hpp>. That way, if people wanted a thin version they could use yours directly, or if they wanted the same capability with units they could use the Boost.Units interface.
