You're kidding? Surely users will say "look, it's a big number," and
go on with their lives. If the presence of big numbers confuses them,
they probably have serious other problems we can't fix.

I agree with Perry's assessment that it is nice to have the raw data.
I'd much rather the OS not make decisions for me about what is
significant and what is not.
