Which I removed, since I can't see how it could work if Unit is KSharedPtr. 
Converter has UnitCategories which has Units. Category takes care of creating 
and deleting units. If Unit is deleted outside category (by KSharedPtr or 
otherwise) categories will fail. Values only have pointer to unit. They don't 
create or delete units. I think I need one instance of Converter class that is 
deleted on last-usage which then frees categories and units.
