I was going to make the same suggestion... my only other thought would be
maybe instead of "Pointer size" have it say something a little more
non-programmer-friendly, but since I'm a programmer, I don't know what
that would be.  =-)  "Architecture"?  (If so, it would be "%d-bit" rather
than "%d bits".)
