First a "Thank you very much" for the great library.

As no one else has stepped up, I'd like to volunteer. I've been using
Boost.Units with great success for the last five years. For my recent Boost
contributions see Mostly small bugfixes,
Boost.Build support over the last decade.
Boost.Units is getting more attentions now as c++11 is getting momentum.
Personally, I'd like to get
into 1.57.

It would be nice if one of the current maintainer could comment on this.
