Nope, I'm not talking about small-and-fluffy anime characters (that
would be chibi, anyway), but about the de-iure-but-not-de-facto (yet :P)
standard to use correct "binary" prefixes also for byte, thus removing

As it goes 1000 bytes is 1 kilobyte (1 kB)
while 1024 bytes should be called 1 kibibyte (1 KiB).

It's true: pretty much nobody uses "kB" correctly already, but is that a
good reason not to be unambiguous when we could easily avoid it? :P
