Request - Show actual available space

I know that the fact that Path Finder does not take APFS purgeable space into account has been discussed previously. In other words, Path Finder displays total space minus used space minus hidden or purgeable space. While we can argue back and forth about exactly what should be shown, the easy solution is to show both. So at the bottom where it says "xx items, yyy GB available", how about something like

xx items, yyy GB available (zzz purgeable)

If you want to leave the yyy the same as it is now, that's okay, but I'd prefer to see yyy as the same number the Finder shows.
