I think you could leave that out. I was just copying and pasting what
we show. You are right that it cannot be obtained cheaply. We have a
background process that gathers the size and stores it in database to
support graphs etc. So we are able to pull the size from there.

I would just report the information we could include relatively easily
which might have value for the user.
