Description of Problem:
There is no way to display a large file size precisely in bytes, only in
multipliers (KB, MB).  In the "Show Properties" window, size is also
displayed only in multipliers.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[silviu@silviu silviu]$ rpm -q nautilus

How Reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
Open a nautilus window and browse the files on disk.

Actual Results:
Large files have their size displayed only in multipliers of byte.

Expected Results:
To have a way of seeing the sizes precisely in bytes, either as an option
like "Display large file sizes in bytes", or, at least, see that in "Show
Properties" window.

Additional Information:
It is going to be useful as an empirical (but effective) method for
comparing, with the sweep of the eye, if two files are the same, but with
different names.  If sizes are equal, chances are very high that the files
are the same.
