To whom? the person writing it?


If everyone around here had gotten their way we'd already be in a situation were you could write

log_rotation_age = 5m
log_rotation_size = 5m

Would it be a bad idea to always support the multi-character abbreviations? So the min, sec, hr, day, wk, mth, yr ar all, to my knowledge, unambiguous. As are kb, mb, gb, tb. So the above would be:
log_rotation_age = 5min
log_rotation_size = 5mb
edinburgh_distance=5mi
