In Response to: size display toggle: concept summary (Hartmut Schneider)

> Can we agree in this:

> The central toggle can be placed

> Alt-Info should display both sizes.

Also, "DISK Statistics" could/should also reflect the selected size:
Logged, Matching, Tagged, Current Directory...
On general, it's everywhere we see a "size".
(just in some specific places, we could see both, as in ALT+I).

On a second thought... Maybe on the DISK statistics we could always see both, as it has space to grow :-)
If ZTree loads/logs both sizes always, it should be very easy to accommodate a few lines more on that part of the screen.
We would see something like (on each line): Files | Bytes | Usage

Also, since loading both sizes will be slower than it is today, I would provide a ALT+F10 configuration flag to allow use of this new "feature" for "just" whoever sees good use of it.

What do you think?
