Hello,

More and more new gems that bundle java .jars or Windows binaries are showing up on rubygems.org

The issue with that is that when visiting the website, there is no clear indication of the file weight (size) for users to be aware if a gem installation will take longer or should be quick.

While I'm working on integrate progress bar for downloads:
rubygems/rubygems#2

Would love to see a file size for the gems.

For example:

https://rubygems.org/gems/qtbindings/versions/4.6.3.1

Weights more than 1MB and the binary for windows:

https://rubygems.org/gems/qtbindings/versions/4.6.3.1-x86-mingw32

Are 46MB :)

I think having that information close to the download button will also help people.

Thank you.

I just added size to the progress bar in my pull request to help with this.
rubygems/rubygems#2

Thank you ryan, I'm working on integrating the progress bar with RubyGems UI functionality to ease verbose and non-tty interfaces.
