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.
