[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 makes me switching to Linux even harder...
Every one of your developers deserve great praising for their wonderful

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
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.
