5. Use Gig for the sizes.  I had missed this in previous posts.  But it
be a good idea to have the size in Gb after 999 Mb.  We can have a
function that returns the show-able string.

I think something along the lines of what you get from 'ls -h' or 'df -h'
would be better.  We don't want to show GB for the /boot volume, for example.
And some people may just really want to use MB.

Could we give users the option to select a display unit and perhaps by default
do something similar to 'ls -h'/'df -h'.  I like the two or three significant
digits approach and scale the units as necessary:

    99.0M
    2.00G
    0.96k

Everything else in your message sounds great.
