Or: give this information in the ctx->notify_func when committing.
Because at that time you already must have this information.

Which reminds me: I'd also like to have a better progress indication
about how much data is already sent/received and how much data still has
to be sent/received in commits/updates/checkouts/...
This would improve the user experience a lot, especially for big
projects/files. Imagine you download a big file from the internet and
your browser wouldn't show you the progress of the download...

Please don't take me wrong. Sure I'd like to have these features
implemented (and so do most users of TortoiseSVN), but all these are
just 'nice to have' - no need to focus on these.
