    No, I'm serious. I will understand if CML2 does not support
    meta-configuration. A configuration choice as I described above could
    be viewed as a minor facet of a language configuration choice.
    (Should kernel configuration be internationalized or at least
    internationalizable?)

    Choice of kB vs KB vs KiB vs KKB could also be used in some places in
    the kernel. For instance, /proc/meminfo currently shows "kB".
