I was rather thinking that you can get the localized suffix out of
kformat. but I suppose there is actually no API for that. So...

You can only see that sort of thing with the x-test language. If the
label is already translated in libksane I guess that explains it and
is fine.

I totally agree that having stuff at the fingertips is ever so handy.
Perhaps also ask the VDG for input?
Dolphin for example has some view properties in the (smaller) bottom
bar rather than the regular toolbar. Perhaps that is something that
could work here.
In any event this isn't anything that holds up the review, just my 2 cents.
