Though for interactive use, the new option is a benefit.

Given the interactive benefit and a previous request to add this functionality¹
I'm tentatively leaning towards adding this.

Re. the patch:
the implementation is quite clean in 2 places - the LONGINT_OK and the MPZ case 
- and
doesn't seem to get into the way of any future extensions (null-separated 
output, whatever).

Therefore, I'm also 70:30 for adding it.
Of course, we'd also need a long option and texinfo documentation.

Thanks. I don't care much about what the short option is, but it's quite
important for my use case that it does have a short form. Given the
NetBSD precedent [1], I think -h is fine. We can make the long option
--human-readable or --exponents, I don't have any opinion on that.

Should I respin with -h instead of -e?

I'll apply the attached later.

thanks again,
