FYI, I'm working on a patch to setup that will show the size of the
packages that will be downloaded. The patch is still a bit raw (i.e.,
it's not showing the size for all the right packages, and computing the
size of packages not in setup.ini is still not done), but I can submit
what I have so far to get it into CVS, and we could fine-tune it later.
Rob, what do you think?
