I know the milli percent comes form the humidity equivalent, but I wonder
if we are right to follow that.  10^-5 is a pretty random base unit (though
I got argued into it being a standard choice for humidity sensors IIRC...

What do people think?  We could go with 1 for full range or just percent 
perhaps?

I'm not that fussed about staying consistent with humidity - we are unlikely
to end up with sensors doing both anytime soon so there shouldn't be
any confusion...
