I would love to pass the responsibility for ongoing maintenance of Boost.Units on to a new torchbearer. My time to dedicate to this project has dwindled to essentially zero, and I believe it would be best for all involved to enlist some fresh blood, ideally someone who is using the library on a regular basis... Any volunteers?
As far as Erik's request, I don't have any objections to adding these to the library, though I have not had time myself to verify that they are correct.
