Maybe this is a too simplistic approach but I always use modules even
if just to wrap units.
I only used units once when I needed runtime pluggable components.
I.e., like modules that I can load during runtime and connected them
in my program extending its set of features.

Would be units useful for anything else but this? I don't know...
