/** This is an attempt to use the water.frink libraries to obtain a
    high-accuracy boiling point of water at a specific ambient atmospheric
    pressure.

    It is primarily based on The International Association for the Properties
    of Water and Steam (IAPWS, http://iapws.org/) document IAPWS R6-95(2018),
    a PDF of which is usually available from:
