yeah, but i'm not sure it's worth it for such a small string.  in fact, i
think it is a loss, see comment in sv.c:

probably best to stick with your original.

might be worth checking what mod_autoindex outputs for a file of size
greater than what apr_off_t can hold too.

that is probably the right place.  but Apache::String::format_size has a
better ring to it.  either that or just group it with APR::Util (as
APR::Util::strfsize), where the current APR::Lib functions are supposed to
move to.
