Is there any way, when using the Units package, to have Mathematica suggest more useful units?

For instance, if I multiply a current times a resistance, it simply gives the result as Amp Ohm, when what I'd like is for it to recognize that this is a Volt. Similarly, if I multiply a mass times a velocity^2, it would be handy to be given Joules, instead of ((Kilogram Meter^2)/Second^2).

My Ti-89 can do this. Is there any way to do this in mathematica?
