Subject Re: more than one unit of measue fo the same product: advice requested.

Ok so your talking about receiving different UOM like from different 
suppliers but you want one UOM to sell.
That seems to be something to setup per supplier and use the normal 
conversions available now.
Unless you expect to get different UOM from the same supplier, in which 
case I can see your point.
However while doing this Please leave some room to use it as the person 
selling wants to have different UOM to sell as Finished goods, so code 
can be added to generated the Virtual/variants products and pricing.
so a link from your new UOM would have a reference to the UomConversion 
entity for you price variance.
