Are you sure about this? I mean Subversion already knows (at least when
*sending* changes to the repository) what the changes are before sending
them.
And it might help a lot if just the number of bytes already transferred
could be shown (so the user know that *something* is going on), even if
the total amount isn't known. Kind of like browsers do when downloading
files without knowing how big the file really is:

file: test.bin
3.4 kBytes transferred at 0.3 kBytes/s
=====****=============================

with the progressbar 'floating', i.e. a bar moving from left to right
and back again without showing the real progress.
