One thing that would actually be nice for other reasons as well is a
version of pg_size_pretty() that lets you specify the output unit, say,
as a second argument.  Because sometimes you want to compare two tables
or something, and tells you one is 3GB and the other is 783MB, which
doesn't really help.  If I tell it to use 'MB' as the output unit, I
could get comparable output.
