My guess is that a 5-byte width will be enough for most users for the
short term. I was thinking that if we do use humanize-number for some
longer term solution, it would be done via some new explicit option.
There are a few other ways to deal with this that I might like to try,
too, but I felt this change was a reasonable "quick fix".
