apt-get install units

If units misses some of this functionality maybe you should contribute
to units instead of making a new program.

For example:

$ units '1 FIM' 'euro'
        * 0.16818793
	/ 5.94573
i.e. 1 euro is 5.94573 Finnish marks. Or was because Finnish mark is
pretty much gone now as I had to hunt for them to make certain
machines, which require coins, to work :)
