For the next installation, could I request that you include 'units'?
It's only about 30K, but sometimes it is just SOOOO nice to have.

If you haven't seen it, try playing with it at some time. It's
capable of converting from just about any unit to just about any
other compatible unit
As an example: to determine the impact energy of a 400ton
asteroid traveling at 35miles/second:
% units
You have: 400tons-(35miles/second)^2
You want: megatons-tnt
        * 0.27516799
        / 3.6341436

and, of course, there's the infamous:
% units  miles/hour furlongs/fortnight

Is this the package you are referring to:
