It sounds like you've surveyed a lot of software in Debian and found some that uses 2 and some 10 for data storage measurement. What's the breakdown look like between the two? The only software I know of that uses powers of 10 is partman (which I'm pretty sure d-i has a bug report about somewhere). But I have not surveyed the other software, aside from a few things like ls that I use day-to-day and know use powers of 2. I had generally assumed that most programmers were reaonsable and used powers of 2, but this thread is certianly changing my mind about *that*. -- see shy jo  Bandwidth measurement is, as noted in this thread, a general absolute mess and PITA.
