I don't think that anyone is going to think, oh I am using 1000 Mega Bit
of ram. Mb == MB in this case. That being said, it is documented and I
don't know that it makes that much difference as long as the
documentation is clear.

Hmm perhaps perhaps a quick statement to the effect of what is legal in
the postgresql.conf? E.g;

# When setting memory parameters you may used a shortened sytanx e.g.,
# 1024MB or 1GB is 1 Gigabyte of ram. Note that MB/GB is capitalized.
