Building on Pádraig's Gnulib patches of November, I installed the
attached to add support to Coreutils for the new SI prefixes R and Q.

It'll be a while before 'df -h' outputs them, as I'm not expecting file
systems in the ronnabyte range soon, given that the total amount of data
storage in the world is still less than a yottabyte, and given that
we'll need 128-bit integers support all this consistently. Still, the
new R and Q prefixes are supported by 'sort' and 'numfmt' as-is.

Thanks for doing that.
I see you missed my proposal from Nov,
which I didn't commit since I had a similar more complete
local patch set I was working on.

We ended up with almost exactly the same thing which is good.

Attached are some further tweaks,
which I've pushed just now.

Marking this as done.
