Sorry, I've lost context.  Are you talking about
the output of "ls -ls --block-size=1"?
Currently it starts with something like
"total 8642560", and then each line looks something
like this:

40960 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 38484 2011-02-23 05:22 foo

where the "8642560", the "40960", and the "38484"
are all byte counts.  Which of these three numbers are
you thinking should not be a byte count when the block
size is 1?  And how should the --si and -h options affect
that number's display?
