Project Proposal: Physics / Measuring

                 Key: COMMONSSITE-19
             Project: Commons All
          Issue Type: New Feature
         Environment: Java 5.0 and higher, all platforms
            Reporter: Matthias Rothe

The measuring project is a physics related library containing classes for all sorts of measuring
units, their prefixes and measurables, objects that take a subtype of Number and a measuring

Those measurables will be capable of converting themselves into target measurables of the
same or a related measuring unit. Say you have an object of the measurable type meters and
want to convert it to miles. All you would need to do is passing the meters object the desired
measuring unit and prefix and you'd get a new measurable of the target unit and prefix and
the converted value.

Furthermore all measurables, measuring units and prefixes will be able to tell their names
(and values) in a locale sensitive way, either abbreviated (e.g. km) or fully (e.g. kilometer).
