      Description

      PropertyList is how we perform FITS header I/O, but it does not support missing values, which are used in FITS headers to indicate items that have unknown value.

      Furthermore, it would be nice to have support for units as a separate field, though for FITS headers one must include that information as part of the comment.

      I am not necessarily proposing to do this work, but I felt I could at least get permission for it to be done.
