In the documentation, it is said that "when querying memory size values" using ini_get, it returns a string (like 2M, 512K, etc). Then there is an example of a "return_bytes" function wich would get the corresponding integer.
I wonder if you could implement such a function in the core php language, it is really often needed, and would keep the scripts compatible if you change the format of the specifications in the .ini file (ie. if you add the possibility of specifying memory sizes with "KB", "MB" instead of M and K).
