I was looking at Martin Fowler's Quantity pattern earlier.


I remember writing this up as an idea for Fortran back in the early
80's, only to find a CACM paper from 1978 exploring the idea:
"Incorporation of Units into Programming Languages", Karr & Loveman, May

But it would still be a cool idea for Python.  Perhaps it's already
there and I haven't noticed?
