#7054 closed defect (implemented)

Get rid of vague memunits from the man page

Our man page has vague lines like

**BandwidthRate** __N__ **bytes**|**KB**|**MB**|**GB**::


(Default: 1 GB)

Wouldn't it be nicer if we said Bytes rather than B in each case? Then it would be the default for people to say KBytes, and just a happy coincidence that our code happens to handle the shorthand version of it too.

I guess we could also call them Kbytes, since KBytes looks kind of dorky.

(Actually KBytes looks normal, but GBytes sure doesn't.)

This seems okay to me, if you believe in it. The current "KB" thing seems to confuse approximately 2 people annually. I don't think that this one would confuse people any worse.

(Let me know if you still believe in it, or want to bikeshed more)
