I uploaded a new version, but with what you describe, this will not suffice to 
fulfill your needs for IEC binary prefixes (please confirm). For the record, I 
haven't seen it anywhere in English that dots are put in between.
I guess a second map with the IEC binary prefixes is required so that one can 
translate them separately.

I'm away for the next week, so will continue to work on the patch afterwards.
