So, encouraging non-uniform terminology, breaking applicates *and*

sold by the MB, everyone talks about MB == 1024*1024... I'm
having a hard time giving a sympathetic ear to anyone try to
change the well established, and consistent (barring the storage
venduhs), standard.

And disks by the GB where GB == 1000^3 so I don't see any problem in
moving from KB to KiB and friends ESPECIALLY AS THEY ARE STANDARDIZED
BEYOND THE KERNEL and nothing will change this.
