There are three different brackets indicating different modes:
[ = Branch
( = Directory
{ = not fully logged.
so you cannot replace them by one character.

That would be possible.

I am not sure whether dynamic units are useful. You would loose the ability to find out quickly the outstanding largest numbers because of their length. Maybe dynamic units could be one option in the list additionally to fixed units.

Of course, it would be not so very hard to code but still the above questions have to be answered before anything can happen.
