> via benh: "It's really time for a Bytes/Kilobytes/Megabytes/Gigabytes struct. Unlike
Duration, maybe it makes sense to just create a single Bytes class as the "base", or maybe
call it Bits? Not sure if Size or Data are descriptive enough."
> My thoughts:
> Size: typically refers to number of things (list::size, vector::size, map::size, ...)
> Data: typically refers to the data itself, rather than size (char* data, string data,
> Bytes: although works fine at the unit level, like Seconds, seems odd as the base class
(makes me think of actual byte data, rather than # of bytes).
> Duration worked nicely to avoid doing Amount<Time>, however in this case it's tricker
to avoid Amount<Data> (
> I'd go with Bytes or Bits, preferably Bytes.
