Package: units
Version: 1.87-2
Severity: wishlist

Gentlemen, can you imagine that to get Taiwanese pings (坪), I had to
use Japanese tsubos!

$ units --one-line '10000 meters^2' tsubo
	* 3025

That is because nobody has added the Taiwanese units to
/usr/share/misc/units.dat .

(Here of course ping could be an alias for tsubo.)

But there is lots more Taiwanese units that need to be added.

So what needs to be done is looking up on Wikipedia the origin of 甲 (jia)
etc. commonly used Taiwanese units, and seeing if they can be
constructed out of items already in units.dat. Indeed, many are quite
related to Japanese units, but some are not.

Of course these units are those used in the market place. Official
documents usually are metric.

Anyway for any volunteers that are taking part in this wishlist item,
remember to use genuine Hanyu Pinyin romamization: 台尺:taichi.

Also it would be a great breakthrough if the units program were to allow
real UTF-8 台尺 etc.
