Rob, you haven't looked at the actual changes I made, have you?

If you had, you'd realized that I have not introduced "kibibyte",
or "mebibyte" or any of those terms anywhere. The
changes involve only the IEC-standard abbreviations KiB, MiB, and GiB.

Try criticizing what I actually did, as opposed to what you merely *assume*
I did. You'll be more convincing that way.
