LON-CAPA can typically identify equivalent units. We're hitting the part 
of the year where things can get rather strange. We'll obviously 
experiment with what works, but is there a general rule or set of rules 
about what units will be recognized as equivalent? (I'm presuming this 
one's for Gerd, Guy or Ed 8) )

For example:

J/C =? V
N/C =? V/m
F =? C/V
Pa =? N/m

As an aside, is J/kg*K interpreted as

J*K/kg or J/(kg*K)?
