So the temperature functions available in units(1) aren't defined in the 
database?  They're hard-coded? I find that unlikely.

In case you haven't seen them, I'm talking about TempF(x) and TempC(x), which 
represent absolute points on the scale and convert happily to each other 
including the offset, not degF and degC which represent temperature differences.
