net install: feature request: progress meter for downloading files

Description of problem:
The netstg2.img is 12 MB. It takes a while to download this file,
even with broadband connections. It would be nice to have a progress
meter. Currently, it is easy to think that the install simply failed,
or hung, as the file is transferred to a file descriptor.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda: core 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start net install
2. Select a mirror
3. Watch the "retrieving netstg2.img" portion
Will consider as time allows.
Passing on for Fedora Core 2.

Hi, any progress on this feature? It is a kind of annoy for users in places like
China, because there is usually no fast ftp/http mirror to use. It took
something like half of hour to download stage2.img file. Without any progress
information, those users are suffering from bad user experiences.
This has been implemented in Rawhide. Please give it a try and let us know if you have any problems.
