Summary description: A set of units useful in high energy physics

Announcement text:

This is a major update (in concept if not actually large code volume)
to finally use siunitx rather than SIunits as the basis for hepunits --
back in 2007, siunitx and LaTeX3 support were rather flaky, so the
update never happened at the natural time. This update does change the
behaviour: better names for some units, removal of some pointless
units, making the units non-freestanding by default, and excluding
non-essential convenience prefixed macros for SI units unless requsted
via a package option. Kerning of the eV, eV/c and eV/c^2 macros has
been refined to perform appropriately in bold and non-bold contexts,
and the documentation improved.
