How does this compare with what comes out of pg_size_pretty 
(src/backend/utils/adt/dbsize.c)? I already have code floating around 
that parses the output from pg_size_pretty when I'm slurping in things 
from PostgreSQL, and it's not immediately obvious to me what having a 
format that's similar to but not quite the same as that one is buying here.
