That would be a nice thing, but it could also get very confusing. For
instance, imagine the confusion the use of MB and MiB side by side would
create. And Konqueror reporting one number while ls reports another...
And not discussing whether it should be done or not, just imagine the sheer
amount of work it would generate just to find all the places where the binary
calculation is made. It would be a lot easier to change into the
funny-sounding units than to go decimal...
I for one will be happy on the increase of memory, from 768MB to 805.306MB :-)
