 Replying to [comment:2 Cigaes]:

 rest of the message, it seems to me the real reason is “I would prefer”.
 Which is it? What is “incorrect” or “inconsistent” in the current display?

 Sorry, it's just "not optimal", I was writing this a bit late yesterday.

 You can see there's a lot of spaces between size and the number, and you
 see one space between frame= and the number, while others have no spaces.
 But everything has no space between units either, that one is not an
 inconsistency but just something I think is too tight.

 It may be a little bit of personal bias because I'm a very shortsighted
 person and  speed=424230kb/s can be harder to distinguish clearly without
 having to focus-in on the screen, it's not about lazyness, it's about
 multitasking and while it seems like a minor thing, it adds up when you
 combine it wholly looking at the workflow.
