Would it help if we would use Mbit here, to allow other types of improvements later?

In general I'm committing over the internet and I don't think these speeds make any sense here in the forseeable future, while I could see us optimizing between ADSL (1-20 Mbit down, 0.25-4 up) and fiber (20-300 Mbit synchronous) in future versions.

I don't see a more than one GBit connection to a server anywhere in sight for workstations, except for very specific network setups. (Server-server might go to 10 Gbit/s in the near future, but that is not a common workstation scenario)

If we switch to Mbits/s as value we should still be able to talk about more than a Pbit/s using a normal integer.
