What about the flip side when you're doing an add or commit? (Thinking
about the add window where you confirm that you want to add things to
the commit queue, or the commit queue window prior to starting the commit.)

Currently the TSVN window shows the file count prior to the action and
it would be nice to see the overall size of the files included in the
list. I'm not really interested in "how many bytes will be transmitted"
which is very complex to calculate, but more of a cross check where the
user sees that they're about to try a 3GB commit action.
