How to call the library?

    Some comments perhaps:
    libunits
    libunitsconversion
    libdisplayunits
    libunitspolicy
    => doesn't fit IMHO, as this is (AFAIU) not a general units conversion lib

    libbinaryunits
    => binary units are in principle not just byte units, are they? so IMHO, also doesn't fit

    libmetric
    => analogous as with libbinaryunits,.. this is not a generic metric conversion lib, is it?

    libbyteunits
    libbytesize
    libbytes
    libbyteprefix
    => doesn't cover that you perhaps also cover bit (not byte) units with your lib

    libkibi
    => a) why using kibi, not gibi etc.? so this is a rather specific name,.. also the lib is not just about the 1024 units, but also the 1000

    libcompsizeunits
    =>just strange,.. also there are perhaps more units in computing than just bits and bytes

    libinary
    => same argument, as with libbinaryunits,.. also IMHO this is lib - inary

    libbunits
    => would be my vote,... b could be bytes and bits as well as binary

    Strictly speaking this is nor about units but about prefixes. As far as I see binary prefixes are only used for bytes while for every thing else decimal prefixes are used. My suggestion:

    libbyteprefix

    By the way: I think the Ubunto UnitsPolicy as well as the library you are going to write are a good move to end the confusion.

    Cheers
