Yeah, the display on the prompt, and with h5dump, is not so nice…

The UTF-8 encoding is not a big issue, I only want to make sure
that the possibility of using unicode symbols is not forgotten.
Further UTF-8 symbols include π, Ω, µ, and °, which is everything
in udunits2 excluding units not accepted for use with the SI.

The H5MD units module can provide a complete table, so implementers
can copy&paste these few non-ASCII symbols when needed.
