v2.0w:  - Make S columns work with REVTeX

Basic package information, as sent by the contributor.
Location: /macros/latex/contrib/siunitx
Caption: A comprehensive (SI) units package.
Description: Typesetting values with units requires care to ensure
    that the combined mathematical meaning of the value plus unit
    combination is clear.  In particular, the SI units system lays down
    a consistent set of units with rules on how they are to be used.
    However, different countries and publishers have differing
    conventions on the exact appearance of numbers (and units).  A
    number of LaTeX packages have been developed to provide consistent
    application of the various rules: SIunits, sistyle, unitsdef and
    units are the leading examples.  The numprint package provides a
    large number of number-related functions, while dcolumn and rccol
    provide tools for typesetting tabular numbers.

    The siunitx package takes the best from the existing packages, and
    adds new features and a consistent interface.  A number of new ideas
    have been incorporated, to fill gaps in the existing provision.  The
    package also provides backward-compatibility with SIunits, sistyle,
    unitsdef and units.  The aim is to have one package to handle all of
    the possible unit-related needs of LaTeX users.

    The package relies on LaTeX 3 support from the expl3 and xpackages
