I'm playing around with humanization of ls output. I am concerned with
an aspect of it's behavior.
When using '-sh', should the file sizes be printed in bytes or
I feel kind of uncomfortable having '-h' change the unit of measurement.
This may be ok if it forces every measurement to be in bytes. If this
is the case, then the first row of `ls -lsh` will be a duplicate of the
sixth row. I need some advice for dealing with the humanized output in
a consistent way.
