Hi all,
      Please look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_prefix . I
put a bug up for it https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/119822 &
Aaron helpfully said it needs more discussion. I have had great
support from libtorrent code.rasterbar.com as well as the guys at
deluge http://dev.deluge-torrent.org .
    The difference is simply astonishing to put aside if let's say a
download or an .ISO says 700 MB (700*1000) it becomes 683.59375 MiB
(700000/1024) . Please lemme know what you guys think about it ?
    It isn't just ubuntu or debian but this needs to be done
everywhere. Have something accurate.
