Ah! this is "1.11" the version number, not "1.11" some magical base-1
number format. For a moment I was worried about having to print
thousands of 1's. :)

Nitpick: the base-2 units are actually base-2^10, and the base-10 units
are really base-10^3.

But do we really need to support this option value explicitly? The
absence of the option already asserts the default behaviour.
