Unit alias 'pt' ambiguous #35

In the unit_definitions / standard.rb file 'pt' is used as an alias twice.

Unit.define('pint') do |pint|
pint.definition = Unit('1/8 gal')
pint.aliases = %w{pt pint pints}

Unit.define('point') do |point|
point.definition = Unit('1/72 ft')
point.aliases = %w{pt point points}

I believe the pint is created first and the point unit overrides it's 'pt' alias in the base_unit_cache. In my project I was using pints as pt, and now that is broken. I have fixed it with an initializer in my project, but I feel like one of these should be removed.

I could submit a trivial pull request fixing it one way or another, but as the gem author it is probably your call on which one to keep.

"pt" is an alias for both "point" and "pint" #26
