It doesn't appear to be used in any tests anymore but it's there if anyone wants to look at it and was used in the original unit API testing.

Aha! `jpl_units` *is* used for a few tests in `test_axes.py` and `test_dates.py`, and `test_patches.py`

And those tests behave in what I’d say is a reasonable manner.  So maybe step 1 of coming up with a decent toy units system is accomplished.  

Steps 2 and 3 might be to add some more tests and some documentation/tutorial using the toy unit system.  I’m happy to give that a shot in the next few weeks.  Then we can move on to fixing the methods that don’t play well w/ units.  

Cheers,   Jody
