That's a reasonable argument against following the international
standard. This can be worked around by not changing commandline tools
(since they already have --si options), and having GUI tools that work
with remote filesystems do conversions for us. It's also not
unreasonable to have two size columns in Nautilus. We already have two
permissions columns and two type columns.
