The meaning of -s followed by a plain integer can't be changed, but the meaning of -s followed by something with a suffix can be changed without breaking backward compatibility. Unfortunately, dehumanize_number(3) does not make it easy for the caller to tell whether or not there was a suffix, or what the suffix was.
