   When using Miscellaneous`SIUnits`,
   SI[60 Celsius] erroneously returns 60 Kelvin.  Is there a modification 
that I can make to the package to make it convert 60 Celsius to 333 Kelvin 
but still convert 60 Celsius/Watt to 60 Kelvin/Watt.  This might be a 
limitation of SIUnits that can't be overcome.   In that case when I feed a 
temperature to a package, what is the recommended way to guarantee that 
this erroneous conversion doesn't take place?
   Thanks in advance,
