+1. I don't think it overthinking, too.
Anyone who specifies memory size in GB won't care under-MB
fraction. I don't think '0.01GB' is a sane setting but it being
10MB doesn't matter. However, I don't think that '0.1d' becoming
'2h' is reasonable. "10 times per day" is "rounded" to "12 times
per day" by that.
Is it worth showing values with at most two or three fraction
digits instead of rounding the value on setting? In the attached
PoC patch - instead of the 'roundoff-fractions-harder' patch -
shows values in the shortest exact representation.
31562138 => '30.1 GB'
31562137 => '31562137 kB'
'0.1GB' => '0.1 GB'
'0.01GB' => '0.01 GB'
'0.001GB' => '1049 kB'
'0.1h' => '6 min'
'90 min' => '90 min'
'120 min' => '2 h'
'0.1 d' => '0.1 d'
