Memory Consumption of Buckets

I'm working on a riak deployment and have a question.  I've read that the
approximate storage size per key is 40 bytes plus the size of the key.  Does
the total storage size include the bucket name AND the item key?  If so,
I'll be sure to be prudent in my bucket naming.


Key size: 15 bytes.  Bucket Name size:10 bytes.

A: 15+10+40 = 65


B: 15+40 = 65

I'm guessing it is A since elsewhere it is noted that there seems to be no
real limitation to # of buckets.
