HowTo get WebSVN/Chora to show file size for downloads?

Hello,

I'd like to be able to view the download progress for files downloaded via
WebSVN or Chora (ViewCVS might have the same issues, I just have yet to
install it) when downloading single files via these web interfaces.

I'm able to do see progress when downloading the Tarball flavor of
directories in WebSVN, but single files or any files in Chora do not
present such capability.

It appears to me this is because the web-browser client doesn't know how
big the file is to begin with, and therefore can not show progress.

Is this a reflection on my svnserve (which is running a Subversion
1.2.0-RC1 server) or the above web apps or both? (I'm running a fsfs
backend.) Is it simply not possibly to know/show the file sizes prior to
downloading them simply because the repository doesn't know the file size
until the file is extracted?

Maybe a later rev of the server will handle this better?

While I'm at it...it would be nice to know the file download sizes when
viewing them in WebSVN/Chora. Is this issue related?

Finally...when using Tortoise, I'd like to be able to see progress for the
large files.

I wrap all these questions together because my gut tells me it's all
related to the per-file-size meta-data tracking...or lack thereof.

Thanks for any help,
-Matt
