Yes ok, I supose it does become a problem as file
sizes increase.  Since we've still only got 10 fingers,
and 26 letters and decreasing intellectual output, I see
little reason for files to increase.  Except if they
encapsulate mult-files or are big data-sets.
A more important/necessary use of ls is to see it 2 files
are EXACTLY the same size, than rounding [ambigiously] to K.

I think you already KNOW that/why extensions/mods have potential
problems. google: Design by committee ? Parkinson's law/s ?
