[PATCH] Add support for JEDEC/metric standards to KLocale::formatByteSize

For the spacing between the number and the unit, we currently use a
fullspace, whereas a thin space is considered typographically better.
The four main possibilities are:
34 KiB <-- ordinary space
34 KiB <-- THIN SPACE
34 KiB <-- HAIR SPACE
34KiB <-- nothing
(you should see the space between the number and unit decrease)
So, can we change to use a thin space please?
If we do go for a thinspace, it would be nice to have a "formatRate()"
function as well, that returned: "%1 s⁻¹" so that this can
consistently follow how we set the spacing and how we format the time
as 1/s or s⁻¹.
