Glad to help.

I am not sure, if there's anything going to happen at OFMP, but it is not
directly related to us ar UOMo.
Frederic said, they'll migrate to Eclipse Labs, let's see if that attracts
new committers...?

It is a building block like EMF, most likely to even support it in some way.
If you find a way to use ICU4J (Measure/Currency) in JQuantLib, that'll be
fine, and compatible with both some of Google's projects and Eclipse UOMo or
its extensions towards financial use cases.

The most I'd imagine to see in UOMo itself is probably a more sophisticated
Currency class than ICU4J has and basic currency exchange on top of that.
Probably sets of rules or interfaces to use exchange rates in time and
context, but no concrete implementations. That's up to either you, OFMP or
custom projects.
