"""A plugin for converting measured values from one unit to another unit (a
unit converter).

The plugin looks up the symbols (given in the query term) in a list of
converters, each converter is one item in the list (compare
:py:obj:`ADDITIONAL_UNITS`).  If the symbols are ambiguous, the matching units
of measurement are evaluated.  The weighting in the evaluation results from the
sorting of the :py:obj:`list of unit converters<symbol_to_si>`.

Enable in ``settings.yml``:
