setup program problem

this is not essentially a bug as such, but an interface issue that i feel is 
pretty important. when selecting which packages in the setup program you 
wish to download/install, there is no reference made to how large the 
packages are in terms of file size. this makes it a big inconvenience to 
those like myself on modem connections where d/l'ing some packages could 
take a few hours. in fact, even when downloading commences there is a mere 
progress bar indicating how far through the total size of the packages is 
complete, rather than the total download size or even the total download 
time remaining. this would be really really useful if it could be 
implemented, thanks :)
