I suspect more calc users use postscript points than "real points"...

Probably better to make "pt" / "point" mean postscript point, and add
"typopoint" or something for typographer's points (does anyone even
still use those now that postscript is so widespread?).  Btw where on
earth did the name "bp" come from???  I've never heard it before.
