If I have mb, then I don't care about Kbytes. If I have bytes I can easily eyeball Mb and Kbytes. If you exceed the limit of the bytes field, Ztree already does the conversion for you to Kbytes.

Do you care about the impact this might have on performance?

Surely you can look at just the first 3 and 6 digits and ignore the rest.

How about a significant/frequently needed "real world" example of how mb would displayed would make a difference than having bytes/Kbytes displayed. Once a month I like to know if a certain group of files will fit on a 700mb CD. I prefer the 1024 byte multiple, so I go to eXecute and do "calc xxxxxxxxxxx/1048576=mb (and you can store the value in history). or bytes/(1024*1024).
