   File-sizes get bigger. I have regularly files that are >= bytes. This makes ls output a bit "difficult" to read
   and the format is "jumpy" if they are mixed with files <=
   999.999.999 in size.

Why not just use --human-readable?  I would have a hard time reading
several lines of files that have such big sizes.

>From (fileutils)What information is listed:
     Append a size letter such as `M' for megabytes to each size.
     Powers of 1024 are used, not 1000; `M' stands for 1,048,576 bytes.
     Use the `--si' option if you prefer powers of 1000.
