I've tried units packages in other systems. (notably Mathcad)  After 30 
minutes I abandon them.  Much typing, little payback.

This may be the same as the Scientific Python solution (which I don't 
quite understand):    two units, degC and Cdeg.   100 degC = 373 K.   
100 Cdeg = 100 Kdeg. 

The standard physics text Halliday, Resnick and Walker (and its 
offspring Cummings, et al) do it that way.
