[DM] All are with you (including myself) when you strive for
consistency. The display should be consistent and correspond to
the label in the table head.

I am not with you with respect to "number of indexed objects"
versus "size of the index". In fact *BOTH* as index specific
(otherwise, it would not make any sense to list it in an index
specific column).

Maybe, a compromize would be to include both numbers?
