[UDUNITS #FYK-161024]: units for radiation question


The question is what should the unit specification "rad" mean? Radian or 
centigray? A choice has to be made and the winner was "radian". The 
commented-out portion was kept for historical reasons.

So, the UDUNITS package interprets "rad" as meaning "radian". If you want the 
radiation unit, then use "centigray" or "cGy".

Hangin' in there. Can't complain (nobody listens :-).
