CVS commit: src/usr.bin/units

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   apb
Date:           Fri Dec 28 17:57:46 UTC 2012

Modified Files:
        src/usr.bin/units: units.lib

Log Message:
Rename "tappit-hen" to "tappithen" because unit names cannot contain
hyphens.  Also change the definition from "3 imperial" (a dimensionless
quantity) to "3 bottle" (2.25 litres).  Wikipedia and several other web
sites say 3 bottles or 2.25 litres, but

    There seems to be no firm definition of the bottle size referred to
    as "tappit-hen". Believed to be of Scottish origin, a tappit-hen
    can vary, according to which definition one follows, from 1 1/2
    bottles to a tregnum or 3-bottle bottle. It is safest to say that it
    approximates to a magnum.

and ends with:

    1 Tappit-Hen (2.25 liters) per lot
