Good point, that said your proposed solution doesn't cut it, we have to be 
able to make several calls with different units and let the implementation 
decide if it show them all or not (for instance in our copy dialog you get 
both the file count and the directory count).

So maybe the solution would be to constrain the spec by allowing only a fixed 
set of unit strings ("bytes", "directories", "files"), or use an uint id for 
this fixed set of units.
