Just an idea: look at the code for numpy.ma ufuncs (in numpy.ma.core).  
By defining a few classes for unary, binary and domained functions,  
you could probably do what you want, without having to recode all the  
functions by hand.
Another idea would be to define some specific __mul__ or __rmul__  
rules for your units, so that the list would be transformed into a
