These units can be used in the current upload. In a next upload the "19 feet
max" message that tex issues when reaching a maximum will be adapted to a
more realistic variant. (Actually, because tex has no foot unit, we could as
well replace that with a more impressive little feet unit but we forgot to
measure the smallest foot present which i guess was about 3 es so the limit
is then some 75 bare theodores.)

   I measured the theodore at 13cm, so that puts the limit at about 45
theodores, actually.
Oh, so a bug, I'll fix the message. Not really a unit but then, feet is also not one.

\newdimension\theodore \theodore=5es

You can also abuse the eu unit:

\eufactor50 % times ts

x\hskip1eu x
