[minor feature request] IDiff file size display

Hello. I've been using TSVN for some time now and I must say that i love
it!
It makes me switching to Linux even harder...
Every one of your developers deserve great praising for their wonderful
work!

Anyway. Im doing mostly web development and been using SVN+TSVN almost
daily for some years now.
I find the TortoiseIDiff tool really useful, but one little thing i miss
is the display of file sizes. Since you dont see file size diffs in the
normal log windows, this is a good place (and useful) to see.

This is my scenario, and a pretty common one as a web developer i guess:

1) I create some web graphics, small gif, png or so. Add it to svn
repository
2) At some time i run a batch tool to optimize all gfx (such as optipng
or pngoptimizer)
3) Commit slighlty different files (hopefully invisible differences)

Now i want to see the one diff that matters, how big are the files? 2
bytes matter here.. :-)

In TortoiseIDiff of version 1.4.5 the file size of a file less than a
kilobyte is shown as:

"File size: 0 k Bytes"

In this case certainly the bytes would be more informative?

Also i would really like to be able to see the exact file size in TIDIFF
even for files larger than 1 kb, perhaps not enabled-by-default but
through an option somewhere or so.
